Now, in its fourteenth year, the program continues providing financial support to outstanding area students. The CHI Oakes Hospital Educational Gift Committee has selected Lyndsey Effling and Grace Schmitz as this year's recipients. These two individuals will each receive $750 to be applied to the cost of their education in a medical field.

Lyndsey Effling graduated in May from Britton High School. She will be attending South Dakota State University in Brookings this fall, where she will be pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.
