Dr. Henri L. and Elnore N. Petit Endowed Scholarship in Medicine
The Dr. Henri L. and Elnore N. Petit Student Loan Fund, established in 1963, was created through an estate gift from the Petits, made to support loans for medical students. Dr. Petit was born in Pennsylvania in 1878, and, in 1908, he started practicing medicine in Centralia, Wash. The Petits were active members of the community, and Dr. Petit was a member of a number of professional associations, including the American Medical Association. The Dr. Henri L. and Elnore N. Petit Endowed Scholarship in Medicine will provide current and future medical students with much-needed scholarship support while also honoring the intent and generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Petit.
