Louisa Peak Scholarship

The application is due March 2, 2020 at 4 p.m.

Louisa Peak devoted her life to children and volunteering. Louisa was a long time teacher in the Cedar Rapids Community School District. She spent most of her career teaching and nurturing junior high (or middle school) students.

While she was a teacher, Louisa also became an active volunteer in school activities, the community and at St. Luke's Hospital. When she retired, Louisa volunteered at St. Luke's Hospital 40 hours a week. 

Louisa Peak was St. Luke's first 10,000 hour volunteer in 1978. 

When Louisa Peak passed away in 1981, her family created a scholarship in her honor. The Louisa E. Peak Scholarship was created to pay tribute to her two life interests:

  • Children
  • Volunteering

To be eligible

  • The applicant must be an active student volunteer in good standings at St. Luke's Hospital.

  • The applicant must be a graduating high school senior in good academic standing.
  • The applicant must plan to enter a humanistic occupation such as teaching, healthcare or social work.
