Julie Hickethier Nursing Scholarship
Julie Hickethier graduated from the Carroll College Nursing Program on a Sunday and started working as a registered nurse in the emergency room at the Deaconess Hospital (now Benefis Hospitals) the following day. She spent the next 19 years in the ER and then moved into administration at Benefis, where she worked until 2014.
The Julie Hickethier Nursing Scholarship Endowment, created in 2011, is Julie's way of showing her appreciation for a rewarding career, her alma mater and Great Falls Central, the value-based high school that made a difference in the lives of her two children. It is Julie's preference that this scholarship is awarded to students from Great Falls Central or those who are pursing degrees at Carroll College, but it is not limited to those specifications. The scholarship is to benefit students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree or BSN's pursing graduate degrees.
