On the morning of Saturday, May 19, the Northeast Tech Pryor Campus will transform into a 5K course for the second annual Ken Heddlesten Armed & Dangerous Scholarship Run. Named in honor of a former practical nursing (PN) student who lost his battle with cancer, the run was created to generate scholarships for current PN students.
Ken Heddlesten was a PN student during the 2015-2016 school year. Sadly, shortly before completing the program, Ken was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given only months to live. His family, friends and classmates still mourn his loss. His was a life of service to others, first in the military and then in the medical realm, and naming a scholarship effort in his honor seemed a fitting way to honor our fallen classmate.
