Marjorie B. Oliver Fund for Nursing Scholarships

Marjorie Oliver

Year Founded

1997

Founder
Putnam County Health Careers Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors

Purpose of Fund

The primary purpose of the Fund shall be utilized by the Scholarship Committee of the Putnam County Health Careers Foundation, to award scholarships to those worthy individuals of Putnam County to pursue nursing careers.

History of Fund
The Putnam County Health Careers Scholarship Fund was established by the bequest of Mrs. Marjorie B. Oliver in July 1996. She saw the need for qualified local medical personnel, and sought to help young women and men in Putnam County complete nursing school. Marjorie was a small woman in stature yet no one could look down on her when she expressed the strength of her thoughts and opinions. This scholarship fund is a great and unselfish way that Marjorie chose to continue serving her community forever.

Marjorie lived in Fillmore for 85 years. Her father, Dr. Joel Bastin, moved from Greencastle to Fillmore when Marjorie was 6 years old. Marjorie was a graduate of Fillmore High School and Indiana Business College and worked for a CPA in Indianapolis, commuting daily on the inter-urban.

Marjorie and her husband William S. Oliver built a small house next door to her father's home, and they lived together there until Bill passed away in 1970. She lived in the home until 4 months before her death.

-- Billy Singleton

In 2007 the name of the Fund was changed to the Marjorie B. Oliver Fund for Nursing Scholarships.
