Lorene Patricelli Seeley Endowed Scholarship
Students who enter the Medical Technology Program at UW Medicine have completed two years at college. They then spend their third and fourth years in the Medical Technology Program. This scholarship is directed at those two final years of undergraduate education.
This scholarship fund was established to honor the memory of Lorene Patricelli Seeley, beloved wife of Jack Seeley. Mrs. Seeley received a degree in Medical Technology from the University of Washington in 1962 and worked in pathology at the Seattle VA Medical Center. Later she worked in infectious diseases at Harborview Medical Center.
Mr. Seeley wrote the following about Mrs. Seeley and the importance of medical technology: “I feel the work of people in medical technology is of great importance to the field of medicine. That my wife — the product of four immigrant grandparents from Italy with minimal education — accomplished what she did was remarkable. If I can make it a little easier for someone else to fill the urgent need for medical technologists, I will be pleased.” Mr. Seeley has made a testamentary commitment that will augment this scholarship.
