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.

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:
To be eligible
The applicant must be an active student volunteer in good standing 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.
