The scholarship assistance program, one of the first long-range goals established by the Auxiliary, a group of Health Center volunteers, has funded 111 scholarships, totaling $189,375, since 1979.
Several years ago, the Auxiliary also established a medical school scholarship named in honor and memory of Beatrice Fleeson, one of the founders of the Health Center Auxiliary, and William Fleeson, one of the six original members of the Health Center Planning Committee. This year, the Fleeson Scholarships were awarded to David Shapiro and Nicholas Evageliou, both Class of 2002. The scholarships will be presented at the annual meeting of the Auxiliary on June 27.
