Medical Alumni Association Executive Committee
Max White, 77M
I would like
to thank my predecessor, Jeff Pendergrast, for his good idea and example
(see page 31) of a lead gift to initiate a scholarship fund on behalf
of his class of 1972. We need to do what we can to help attract good people
into medicine as well as help make it possible that they are not dissuaded
from a career in research, indigent care, or academic medicine simply
because they have a staggering debt from the cost of education.
I would like to congratulate our associations awardees from the
2001 Alumni Weekend, Drs. Frank Wilson, 52M, and Ken Walker, 63M (see
page 34). I sincerely hope you are making plans to attend Alumni Weekend
2002, September 20-21, where classes ending in 2s and 7s will have reunions.
It is only a coincidence that your past president, Jeff Pendergrast, 72M,
and I, 77M, will be celebrating our class reunions this year. Please come.
See you there! (BACK TO TOP)
