IOWA FALLS – When Ellsworth College Foundation Director, Gwen Groen, received a call saying someone wanted to donate to a scholarship for Ellsworth nursing students, she jumped at the chance.  McFarland Clinic Marketing Director, Shelley Goecke, contacted Groen on behalf of Doctors Aaron Heiar and Abigail Hemken.  Both Dr. Heiar and Dr. Hemken felt the Ellsworth College Foundation would be the right place to invest in the community and the medical field.  This scholarship will be used for students enrolled in the Nursing program at Ellsworth Community College, which is the number two program in the state.
