Announcing the Milo C. Albrecht Nursing Scholarship

Milo C. Albrecht Nursing Scholarship

Hesston College announces the establishment of a new endowed scholarship available for the 2024-25 school year: the Milo C. Albrecht Nursing Scholarship.

Students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Hesston’s nursing program will have first preference for this new scholarship. Established with funds from the Milo C. Albrecht estate, this scholarship honors Albrecht’s support of Hesston College and its nursing program.

“Endowed scholarships have a direct impact on helping our students to afford Hesston College,” says acting Vice President of Advancement Lisa Longacher. “We are grateful to Milo Albrecht and his family for including us in their estate planning. Milo’s legacy will live on for years to come.”

Albrecht, who passed away in 2016, was a farmer near Morton, Ill., and a faithful supporter of Hesston College. He was one of the charter members of the Hesston College Partner Program, which was established in 1976. Milo Albrecht’s connection to Hesston College began through a relationship with Milo Kauffman, who served as interim pastor at Albrecht’s church, First Mennonite Church of Morton. Kauffman later served as the Hesston College president, but maintained a connection with Albrecht.
