Three sisters are acting on their mother’s lesson of the value of a good education in a unique way. Sandra Berger, Laney Scherder and Linda Kaiser honored their mother, Gloria Roaden, by creating an endowed scholarship to assist nursing students. The Gloria M. Roaden Memorial Scholarship is available beginning this fall.
Berger received her Bachelor of Science in nursing in 1993. She is the director of nursing at the Center for Surgery in Naperville, Ill. Kaiser resides in Florence, Ky., and is an office manager for a cardiothoracic surgery practice. Scherder lives in Union, Ky., and is the executive assistant to the president and CEO of Omnicare.
“Our mother knew that education was the most basic necessity after those vital to life itself, like food, clothing and shelter,” says Scherder. “Therefore, there is no better way to honor the memory of our mother than to continue her vision and passion for a good education to others.”
