2021 Scholarship Recipient
Leeds High School senior, John W. Fischer, son of Kelly and Cheryl Fischer of Leeds, North Dakota, has been selected as the 2021 Kelsey's Courage Scholarship recipient. The Kelsey's Courage Scholarship was initiated by the Misialek family of Adams, North Dakota in memory of Kelsey Misialek who passed away from injuries sustained in an ATV accident in June of 2012. Kelsey was an energetic and determined 15-year-old who had a strong desire to become an orthopedic surgeon. Due to Kelsey's interest in medicine the Misialek family decided to award an annual $500 scholarship to a North Dakota high school senior pursuing a degree in a medical field.
Fischer was selected because of his exceptional dedication to volunteerism with his community, outstanding academic achievements, work ethic, and his drive to positively influence the lives of others.
John plans to attend North Dakota State University in the fall to achieve his career goal of becoming a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.
