In the memory of Dr. John F. and Ella Mae Daly, their family has decided to start a new Donor Advised Fund at the Grays Harbor Community Foundation titled the Dr. John F. and Ella Mae Daly Memorial Fund. This fund has the intent to award a scholarship each year starting in 2014, as well as benefit the organization Freedom Tails through charitable distributions.
“We are pleased to be able to help the Daly Family honor the memory of Dr. John and Ella Mae. This scholarship is something new and we will be dedicated to carrying the donors’ wishes forward,” said Maryann Welch, Board Chair.
The Dr. John F. and Ella Mae Daly Memorial Scholarship this fund will establish shall be awarded to a Grays Harbor resident or graduate Dental Student with a preference for those attending University of Oregon Dental School or Pediatric Dentistry emphasis. Preference is also given to veteran students or students with a Military commitment upon completion of their studies.
Rich Vroman, Scholarship Committee Chair, echoed “We are thrilled to see this scholarship be established. Our regular Scholarship program supports undergraduate students only but we are very open to donors who have specific ideas on the types of scholarships they want to support. I think this Scholarship will be very helpful to students attending Dental School.”
