With great sorrow and a deep sense of loss, our Department observed the passing on July 5, 2005 of beloved colleague and friend Joe Mitchell, an Assistant Director of Resident Life. Joe's cancer had returned the previous fall.
The Joseph M. Mitchell Memorial Scholarship Award was established in recognition of Joe's compassion for the less fortunate members of our society and in honor of his ability to befriend, guide and mentor individuals whose ability to succeed as students at our institution was challenged by some personal or family circumstance.
The Joseph M. Mitchell Memorial Scholarship is one-time award of up to $2,000, dispersed evenly over the fall and spring semesters. The scholarship may be awarded to one or more deserving students. All awards will be directly applied to student accounts. Students may apply and/or be nominated by other individuals. Contributions to the Scholarship Award fund are welcomed.
