Altrusa names four Patricia and Leonard Kramer Memorial Scholarship recipients

Created with GIMP

QUINCY — The Altrusa International Foundation’s Patricia and Leonard Kramer Memorial Scholarship recipients recently were chosen for this year.

The foundation was founded in 1998 with a bequest from Patricia and Leonard Kramer. Patricia had been a member of Altrusa of Quincy, which is part of an international organization that focuses primarily on literacy. The Kramers had no children but understood the importance of literacy. The foundation established a scholarship in their honor. Since the first scholarship was awarded in 1998, more than $62,000 has been donated to date.

Applicants are judged on a number of factors including grades and school and community involvement. These factors are included in an essay written by the student.

This year’s scholarship recipients are:

  • Danielle Dohm of Quincy High School, a daughter of David and Suzanne Dohm of Quincy. Dohm plans to attend the University of Missouri and work toward becoming a nurse.
  • Morgan Kim of Quincy High School, a daughter of Suzon Neely-Kim of Quincy. Kim plans to attend the University of Missouri and become an OB/GYN physician.
  • Arianna Neisen of Liberty High School, a daughter of Valerie Hasting and Brad Neisen of Liberty. Neisen plans to attend Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville to begin her goal of becoming a dentist.
  • Andrea Schaffnit of Unity High School, a daughter of Kevin and Nicole Schaffnit of Mendon. Schaffnit plans to attend Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and work toward a hospital management degree.
