This scholarship was established by Mrs. Lisa (Huttegger) Newcomer and Mr. Mark Masters in memory of their mother. Mrs. Pat Huttegger was a former nursing instructor at Southeast Missouri State University. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1976. She enjoyed 48 years in the nursing profession and continued to add to a vast knowledge of all nursing procedures throughout her career. Her passions included her children, grandchildren and family, as well as nursing, education and leadership. Her hope was to encourage others to find nursing as gratifying as she did.
