The Ripley County Community Foundation, in collaboration with MMH, recently announced McKenzie Laker as this year’s Doris A. Brelage Nursing Scholarship recipient. A 2021 graduate of Batesville High School, McKenzie is currently pursuing her nursing degree from the Galen College of Nursing.

The Doris A. Brelage Nursing Scholarship was established shortly after Doris lost her life in an accidental death in 2008. A registered nurse and EMS member, she worked at MMH providing care to the residents of southeastern Indiana for 37 years.
