  • PURPOSE

    The Dr. William and Mrs. Muriel Redmond Scholarship provides financial assistance for those pursuing educational opportunities toward a career in a health-related field (clinical or patient care) with a desire to serve the St. Joseph area. This scholarship program, established in 1995, serves as a tribute to the late Dr. William and Mrs. Muriel Redmond. William Storey Redmond graduated from Christian Brothers High School and Rush Medical School of the University of Chicago. Dr. Redmond received his medical degree in 1937, and his internship and residency occurred at the Kansas City General Hospital from 1937-38. Dr. Redmond's lifetime medical practice of 50+ years was conducted entirely in the St. Joseph area except for his time spent in service during World War II. Dr. Redmond was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army with the rank of Major. Muriel Guffey Redmond graduated from Benton High School and then St. Joseph's Hospital School of Nursing in 1938. She was an active volunteer in healthcare, beginning with the Candy Striper program in 1947. She also participated in the St. Joseph Hospital Guild and the Heartland Regional Medical Center Auxiliary. In 1988, the Auxiliary established the Muriel Redmond Scholarship in her honor.
