Delores Street, Ohio Contractors Scholarship


This scholarship is given in honor and memory of Delores Street by her husband Clark Street and the Ohio Contractors Association. Mrs. Street was a graduate of the Ohio Valley School of Nursing in Wheeling, West Virginia, and worked in Cleveland and New Philadelphia, Ohio before settling in Columbus with Clark. She was a volunteer for 17 years at Mount Carmel East Hospital. During her career, she cared for her patients as if they were her own family. Her vivacious personality and her upbeat attitude made her a favorite of all. When she became ill, the love and care she had always given to others was returned to her. Clark Street was the Executive Vice President of Ohio Contractors Association and Delores became a close friend with most of the members. Upon her death in 1998, the past presidents of OCA voted to establish a scholarship at Mount Carmel College of Nursing to honor her memory. Sadly, Clark Street passed away in 2013, and this award is given in gratitude and appreciation for both of their lives and loving spirits.
