Harlan and Mae Niedermyer were residents of Hot Springs for the past 50 years. They came to Hot Springs to finish up their careers in the healthcare field. Mae was a registered nurse for over 40 years and Harlan ran the X-Ray Department at the VA Medical Center until their retirements in 1979.
Harlan passed away February 23, 2020 at the age of 101. Mae passed away July 25, 2021 at the age of 105. They have established a scholarship fund to help Fall River area residents that are interested in pursuing a higher degree in the healthcare field.
The recipients for these scholarships will be chosen by a committee from Bethesda Lutheran Church where the Niedermyers were long-time members. This will be an ongoing scholarship and we encourage you to apply. Scholarship amounts may vary over time. If funds remain available, scholarships may be awarded on a semester basis.
