Dr. Hugh and Margaret Kennedy were Wisconsin natives who moved to Corpus Christi, Texas, in the 1940s. They never had children of their own, yet they inspired their families and, now, new generations of physicians, to reach for lives of meaning. The Kennedy Scholars in the School of Medicine and Public Health are a diverse and impressive group.
I am so grateful to be a recipient of the Gladys Emerson Cook Scholarship, Barbara M. Hanson Brown Community Service Award, and Merit-Based Study Abroad Scholarship. It has also allowed me the financial freedom to achieve my dream of studying abroad for a semester in Rome, Italy, and soon to achieve my dream of obtaining a degree in Community & Nonprofit Leadership.

The scholarships I have received from the School of Music and the Raymond F. Dvorak Scholarship have been very important for my family. The financial assistance provided through these scholarships really have been of much use in reducing the net cost of my schooling and that has allowed me to be able to continue experiencing all of these great things that I have been able to do up here at UW, so I am extremely thankful!
