Doreen Makarenko Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship is named in memory of Doreen Makarenko. Doreen graduated from the University of Alberta, Faculty of Nursing in 1957. She enjoyed a long nursing career at the Fairview Hospital, the Fairview Nursing Home, and later as a Home Care nurse. Doreen was a proud active member of the Fairview community and was involved in many community groups and projects. She valued education and encouraged others to pursue their post-secondary studies; therefore this scholarship has been established to encourage local students to continue their education at the post-secondary level in the field of health care.

One $1,000 scholarship will be awarded annually.
