Benjamin Louis Ladner Scholarship


Benjamin Louis Ladner was a young man who was answering the call to be a nurse. He worked tirelessly at DCH RMC from November 2000 until September 2005 and paid his own way through school, working towards his dream of a nursing degree from the Capstone College of Nursing. Ben loved people and helping others. He was full of patience and compassion and he had a gift for bringing out the best in others, even during stressful and difficult times. Ben would be humbled that a memorial was named for him and he would be proud that others will benefit. The scholarship amount is based on the availability of scholarship funds.
