John and Mabel Heinen Endowment
Provided Support for Graduate
If you think money is tight, talk to a local college student who lives on a strict budget and performs an ongoing juggling act of two part-time jobs, school assignments and family responsibilities. Kaitlin Udelhoven, a 2013 graduate of the Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) Dental Assisting program, received the John and Mabel Endowment to alleviate her financial burden.
“The funds I received from the scholarship went straight to my tuition and fees for college,” she said. “Getting this scholarship helped me with school and means so much because of my other expenses, such as rent.”
Scholarships allowed Kaitlin to experience and participate in college life. While at NICC, Kaitlin served as the vice president of activities for the student leadership organization iMPACT and participated in three service learning trips to San Francisco, Calif., Nashville, Tenn., and Washington, D.C., from 2011-2013 as a volunteer student worker.
Kaitlin, a 2008 graduate of Potosi High School, is the daughter of Peggy and Kevin Udelhoven of Lancaster, Wis.
