MEHOP established the scholarship in 2014 through Texas A & M University (TAMU) – Corpus Christi in memory of their co-worker Nina Sicking who lost her battle with Cancer. Nina, a Family Nurse Practitioner, had a passion for helping others, particularly in diabetic education. She was a nurse and diabetic educator for many years with MEHOP and made the decision to further her education in 2010 to respond to the needs of MEHOP and the community.
The scholarship is managed by TAMU and benefits students from our region who would like to pursue a degree as a Nurse Practitioner. All proceeds go towards the Nina Sicking TAMU Memorial Scholarship Fund.
MEHOP is a 501(c)3 non-profit, Federally Qualified Health Center with service sites in Matagorda and Wharton Counties.
