NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY MERCY HOSPITAL JOPLIN

Joplin, Mo. – Mercy Health Foundation Joplin will present a check for the Lori Pflug Memorial Scholarship on Saturday, February 22 at Missouri Southern State University’s (MSSU) Leggett and Platt Athletic Center. The presentation will take place during halftime of the women’s basketball game, which begins at 1p.m.

The scholarship was created in honor of Lori Pflug, former MSSU graduate and then St. John’s athletic trainer, who passed away in 2006 after battling cancer.

The funds for the scholarship are raised during Mercy Health Foundation’s annual golf tournament. Since its inception in 2006, Mercy has provided more than $20,000 to MSSU students through this scholarship. Last fall, Mercy Health Foundation donated an additional $10,000 to MSSU to start the Lori Pflug Memorial Scholarship endowment fund. Each year, an MSSU student pursuing a career in sports medicine is selected as the scholarship recipient.

This year’s recipient is Kayla Fritz. Fritz is a senior Health Promotion student from Falls City, Nebraska. She attended Highland Community College prior to her enrollment at MSSU in the fall of 2010. While at Southern, Fritz has exhibited the passion and drive necessary for success in her preparation as an occupational therapist.

“We are extremely proud of the way Kayla has conducted herself while at MSSU. She has earned the respect of both her peers and the faculty and is very deserving of the Lori Pflug Memorial Scholarship,” said Marty Conklin, Associate Professor,Kinesiology Department..

The $2,500 scholarship check will be awarded by Mercy Health Foundation’s regional vice president, Fred Osborn, and Miranda Lewis, director of development.
