$2 million estate gift establishes scholarship fund for nurses

Bluffton University has received a $2 million estate gift from the trust of Hazel Robinson that will allow for a new scholarship fund benefitting nursing majors. The Lehman-Huber-Zerhrbach Scholarship is named in memory of the late Robinson’s maternal grandmother, Jane Huber Lehman, and her parents, Henry Zehrbach and Emma Lehman Zehrbach.

The scholarships will be awarded to nursing majors with preference given to female nursing students from India at the benefactor’s request. The first scholarships will be awarded in the fall of 2023.

Madison Brunswick, a senior from St. Henry, Ohio, is Bluffton University’s 10th recipient of a full scholarship to Bowling Green State University’s Master of Accountancy program.

Brunswick earned the Beaver-Falcon MAcc Scholarship, a Bluffton-Bowling Green partnership that includes a full-tuition award plus a paid graduate assistantship for a Bluffton graduate.

Watch recorded Handel's Messiah

Bluffton Bread Company holiday 2021 sales

Bluffton Bread Company online sales are open for the upcoming holidays. From developing and standardizing recipes to streamlining the online shopping cart, Bluffton University students are gaining hand-on learning experiences with the Bluffton Bread Company (BBC).

Available for $12 each (Descriptions by BBC):

Asiago Cheddar: A savory choice, Asiago Cheddar bread combines the richness of asiago and cheddar cheeses with a hint of buttermilk. Literally packed to the brim with cheese, this loaf is surrounded by a crust of parmesan and cheddar. Sprinkled with a dash of cayenne, this bread is not too spicy, but instead will be a showstopper at any event.
