Doris I. Cappon Scholarship

The Dorris I. Cappon Scholarship Program at Spectrum Health Pennock originated from the legacy of a generous $1.4 million gift from a truly dedicated and faithful volunteer. Doris I. Cappon was a member of the Spectrum Health Pennock Hospital Auxillary for many years and upon her death in 2003, the health career scholarship program was established in her name. Today, the Doris I.
