The Russell and Vonda Gillespie Scholarship was established in 2016 in memory of Vonda and first awarded during the 2018-2019 academic year.  Longtime residents of Gentry County the Gillespie family wanted to help NCMC Allied Health students from Gentry County or from the surrounding counties.  The Russell and Vonda Gillespie Scholarship in the amount of $350 renewable for a second semester was awarded to Zackery Lewis – Savannah, MO.
