Longtime La Porte City resident, Susan Loeb, was an educator at Hawkeye Community College with a passion for preparing students entering the field of nursing. Following her death on July 27, 2013 due to cancer, a memorial scholarship fund was established for graduating high school students, with a preference given to those interested in the field of nursing. In 2014, the first $1,000 Susan Loeb Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Brenna Allen. In 2015, two scholarships were awarded- $1,000 to Lydia Lorenzen and $500 to Dayton Powell.
Last weekend, the second annual Susan Loeb Memorial Golf Tournament was hosted by the La Porte City Golf Club, with proceeds used to support the scholarship fund in her name. Anyone wishing to make a contribution may due so by forwarding it to the following address:
