James J. & Bernice M. Scheel Memorial Scholarship

James J. and Bernice M. Scheel were lifelong residents of the Wausau area. They raised their only daughter less than a mile from the NTC Wausau campus. Jim and Bernice loved to help others in any way that they could. They instilled in their daughter the belief that the good that you do for others will be returned to you in the end. Since both Jim and Bernice battled different forms of cancer, it is only fitting that their memorial scholarship benefit a student pursuing a career in the medical field. They interacted with many caring, compassionate, and dedicated professionals at every level of the medical profession. It is the goal of this scholarship to assist one more person in the loving care of others.
