Harlan and Mae Niedermyer Scholarship Information
$1100.00 for Fall River area residents interested in pursuing a higher degree in healthcare
Harlan and Mae Niedermyer have been 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 and Mae are currently both over the age of 100 and would like to establish scholarships 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.
In Christ, for the Church
and the World
The philosophy of worship at Bethesda Lutheran Church is summed up in Paul’s words to the Corinthians when he said, “For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified,” and in his letter to the Romans when he said, “I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.”
