Buena Vista Regional Medical Center recently received a very generous donation from the estate of the late Paula Schmidt that will fund the new "Paula Schmidt Computer Learning Center" at BVRMC. Additional funds from her estate have been designated for the BVRMC Nursing Scholarship program.
Miss Schmidt was a life-long resident of the Hanover area and a retired teacher whose entire estate went to charitable organizations. She resided in Storm Lake before her death. Her love for education led to the development of the new computer center and provided additional support to the nursing scholarship fund. Miss Schmidt's name has been added to the "Circle of Life" legacy society at Buena Vista Regional Medical Center.
