MEDEX Scholarship Fund (includes the Barbara Gunter Flynn Memorial Scholarship and the Howard/Nalley Memorial Scholarship)
This fund was established by graduates and friends of the MEDEX Northwest program. In contributing to this fund, these donors are making an investment both in the education of our physician assistants (PAs) and in the many communities in which our PAs will serve.
This scholarship fund contains within it several specialized scholarship funds to which donors can choose to direct their contributions. The Barbara Gunter Flynn Memorial Scholarship was created to remember the legacy of Barbara G. Flynn, a 1979 graduate of MEDEX Northwest, and to recognize students with humor, grace, and passion. A second scholarship, the Howard/Nalley Memorial Scholarship, was established by Roy Howard, a 1973 alumnus of MEDEX Northwest, and his partner, Catherine Nalley, to honor and remember members of their family. This scholarship recognizes student commitment to family and education. A third scholarship, the Sue Vader Memorial Scholarship, was established to remember 1995 MEDEX graduate Sue Vader, who died of cancer in 2004. Ms. Vader was a strong advocate for women’s health, loved traveling, and enjoyed making jewelry and tending bonsai trees.
