Honoring Marcia Rose
Marcia Rose was born on August 26, 1957, raised and lived almost all of her life in Grayson County, Kentucky. She was the first person in her extended family to attend college, earning an associate degree in medical records technology from Western Kentucky University. She went to work at what was then Grayson County Hospital, and moved into Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center when it was created in Leitchfield, Kentucky, and was at the hospital 36 years.
After a long battle with cancer, she died November 21, 2014, at home under hospice care. She was married to Howard Shartzer. They had a daughter, Brandy, who died at birth. Marcia also helped raise three stepsons and a stepdaughter on a small farm in the general area of Grayson County High School.
Her parents, Kent and Elizabeth Renfrow Rose, and brother, Barry, have created this scholarship to honor her memory, and to help someone else realize their dream of an education.
