VERMILLION, S.D. -- The Faithe Family Scholarship awarded more than $8,000 to three University of South Dakota Master of Public Health (MPH) students this year.
Amanda Kronberg lives in Sioux Falls and works full-time at Sanford USD Medical Center as a medical laboratory scientist. Kiara Pochardt lives in Fargo, ND and works as a clinical research coordinator for the BioBank at Sanford Health. Tasha Wendel lives near Sioux City and is a full-time dental hygienist.

The Faithe Family Scholarship Endowment was designed to recognize University of South Dakota students who demonstrate high achievement, plan to serve the healthcare delivery system and who show financial need. The Faithe Family gave an $8.7 million scholarship fund in 2005 to the University of South Dakota’s School of Health Sciences to support students studying healthcare.
