In the wake of Susan Loeb’s passing from cancer on July 27, 2013, a scholarship was set up in her name through her family and Union High School. Susan was an educator at Hawkeye Community College. Her love was preparing students to enter the nursing field. A scholarship of $1,000 was established and available for graduating seniors preparing to enter the medical field, with preference given to students interested in nursing. This year’s recipient was Brenna Allen, who is planning to major in nursing.
A charity golf tournament has been established, with proceeds to support the Susan Loeb Scholarship Fund. The two person best shot golf tournament will be held on Saturday July 26, 2014 at the La Porte City Golf Club. Registration begins at 9 AM, with the tournament teeing off at 10. To register, please call the La Porte City Golf Club at 319-342-2249. You may also register online at http://goo.gl/5l3PE8. Following the tournament, the clubhouse will host a social gathering open to all.
