M.S. Student Brittany Schambow Awarded Gareth Kerr Memorial Scholarship
M.S. student Brittany Schambow was awarded the Gareth Kerr Memorial scholarship.
The Gareth Kerr Memorial Scholarship is awarded by the Student Health Care Center (SHCC) in memory of UF engineering student Gareth Kerr who passed away in 2006. Kerr made significant contributions to the SHCC, giving quietly and unselfishly of his time, energy, and vision to ensure that quality health services were accessible to all UF students. The award recognizes one special student each year who has “demonstrated interest, commitment, and passion for the health and well-being of fellow students and/or the community at large, and recognizes students that consistently support campus and community health programs and/or work diligently to promote an issue or cause related to health and wellness.” With the number of excellent students and philanthropists on UF’s campus, the selection pool is very competitive. And, this year marked the 10th anniversary of the scholarship (and Gareth’s passing).
