Agatha Smyers Scholarship for the Service Professions Recipients Announced

The McPherson County Community Foundation is proud to recognize three Inman HS alumni as 2024 recipients of the Agatha Smyers Scholarship for the Service Professions: Peter Buller (Bethel College), Ashtyn Schroeder (Kansas State University), and Taylor Thiessen (Kansas State University). Each student will be receiving a $750 scholarship to continue their education next fall.

Graduates of Inman High School who have completed 5 semesters in college and are working toward a degree in the service industry, which could include: educators, clergy, social services, registered nursing, physical therapists, physicians, or dentists are encouraged to apply for the Agatha Smyers Scholarship awarded in the spring of each year.

Peter Buller will be a senior at Bethel College in the fall, studying Bible & Religion with minors in Music and Peace, Justice, and Conflict Studies. He plans to complete his degree at Bethel, spend some time doing voluntary service, and then attend Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkhart, Indiana. His career plans are to work towards ordination as a pastor in the Mennonite church and work in church leadership.

Ashtyn Schroeder has recently been accepted into the Hutchinson Community College Associates of Nursing program. Until the start of the program, she is currently gaining patient experience while working at both the Hutchinson Clinic in OBGYN, as well as the Hutchinson Hospital as a Patient Care Tech. Her plan is to successfully complete the program and become an RN. The field she hopes to work in is Labor and Delivery. Following this, Ashtyn plans to further her education by completing a BSN program as well as a Nurse practitioner program!

Taylor Thiessen is currently a sophomore at Kansas State University majoring in Kinesiology. Taylor enjoys her classes at KSU while learning about the body and how she can help people become more physically active in the future. After completing her bachelor’s degree at K-State, Taylor plans on furthering her education in Physical Therapy where she will complete her doctorate. For Taylor’s future career, she plans on managing and owning her own outpatient clinic in a rural area.

Proud of all of these Inman Alumni!
