Congratulations to the SBW Scholarship Recipients!

Valerie Dent, Linda Fox, Sarah Henderson, and Jessica Hofheins


Jessica Hofheins is beginning her second year of nursing school at State Fair Community College to obtain her RN Certificate. She expects to graduate in May 2021 and plans to work locally in Sedalia.

She recently became a Licensed Practical Nurse and is eager to reach her professional aspirations. While Covid-19 has made nursing school interesting for the past year, she plans to narrow down her ideas on which type of nursing care she would like to specialize in between the OR, OB/Delivery, or the oncology department.

Nursing school is challenging, but she is blessed to say that the support she receives from her husband and family has allowed her to stay successful the past academic year. She feels confident that she will have another great year and looks forward to becoming a professional woman within the community.

Sharah Henderson is a city girl turned country girl. She moved to Sedalia about three years ago from Columbia to start a new life after going through a few life changes. She now lives on a small farm just east of Sedalia in Otterville. She lives with her boyfriend Brandon and all of their livestock. This includes “Normie” her cow, named after the movie City Slickers, their sheep, and hogs.

She could never imagine going back to city life. She is currently employed by Central Missouri Electric Cooperative and is attending school at State Fair Community College. She will graduate with an AAS in Business Management with an emphasis in Accounting in May 2021. Her career goal is to find a job that she loves and can grow with. She wants someplace that she can call home and family.
