Sandra Richardson Baxter and John D. Baxter Endowed Scholarship in Laboratory Medicine
Sandra Richardson Baxter, a 1962 graduate of UW Medicine’s Medical Technology Program, received a scholarship when she was a student in the program. What’s more, the scholarship information she received included a request that recipients consider supporting scholarships when they were able. Ms. Baxter never forgot how important the scholarship was to her education, or the request to support other students who needed scholarships. John D. Baxter, a 1962 graduate of the UW Mechanical Engineering Program and retired from Boeing, and Ms. Baxter saw the opportunity to make a gift, to use their gift to secure matching contributions from Boeing, and to create a permanent scholarship for medical technology students. It is their hope that students who benefit from their scholarship will, in turn, make scholarship contributions of their own.
