STEP Awards 2019 Elmer F. Heiman Memorial Scholarship

Posted Wednesday April 1, 2020

The 2019 recipient of the final Elmer F. Heiman Memorial Scholarship is Shayla Heiman, the daughter of Brent and Jenny Heiman. Heiman, a graduate of Nemaha Central High School will attend Kansas State University in the fall with the intent of majoring in Animal Science/Veterinary Medicine.

She shared in her written application that becoming a veterinarian is the perfect career for her because she will remain passionate about the job. Heiman shared "Every day that could be considered "work" by some will be considered fun for me because caring for animals peaks my interest".

This scholarship was established in 2008 by Aurelia Heiman and her family in memory of Elmer F. Heiman. Elmer Heiman was a member of the first graduating class at Baileyville High School. After high school, he was drafted into the army and then later returned home to work at Baileyville State Bank.

The Elmer F. Heiman Memorial Scholarship, in the amount of $1,000, is awarded to a graduating senior who is from the former B & B School.

It is with great pleasure that the Nemaha County STEP Foundation is able to assist Elmer Heiman's family to leave a lasting "footprint" that carries on his name and memory.
