Michelle Marion Memorial Scholarship

Applicants can visit:

https://www.goingmerry.com/scholarships/michelle-marion-memorial-scholarship/awards/may-2019 for the 2019 Michelle Marion Memorial Scholarship.

The award committee will award two $500 scholarships annually to eligible students.

This scholarship was established in memory of a dear friend and colleague, Michelle Marion, who passed away in early 2018 Michelle held her doctorate in Physical Therapy, going back later in life to receive her advanced degree. She worked in a variety of therapy settings including in-patient, out-patient, and home health. Michelle was a firm believer in the value of education. She was a beloved member of the Warren Community both professionally and personally. Every patient that came in contact with Michelle felt respected and well cared for. Her coworkers and friends felt the best way to honor her memory was to establish this scholarship in her name.

Applicants must be a high school senior within Warren County School District and live in Warren County. The applicant must also be accepted into a pre-medical program (with preference to physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, nursing), and be in the top 25 percent of their graduating class.

Submissions must be received by Saturday, May 18.
