The 2018 Mercy Hospital Volunteer (MHV) Scholarship Award of $500 is Oshkosh West High School senior, Neel Raut. The scholarship is funded through a Mercy Hospital Foundation endowment established by the Ascension Mercy Hospital Volunteers. Criteria for this scholarship are that the awardee is to be a High School graduating senior and a Mercy Hospital Volunteer, in good standing, with a high amount of volunteer hours. The student must also be planning to attend a technical school or university.

Neel began volunteering in errands in April of 2014 and has since dedicated over two hundred hours to helping patients at Mercy Hospital. What Neel likes most about volunteering, is being able to meet new people and to give back to the community in which he lives. Neel is also involved within his school, playing tennis all four years of his high school career. He has made it to state each year so far and is on track to do it again this year.

After graduation, Neel plans to attend Minnesota Twin Cities School of Science and Engineering. He has always enjoyed physics and thinks that he would like a career in this field someday. However, he will enter college as undecided and see where the new city takes him. Neel is excited for the big city experience and plans to continue volunteering while away at college.
