Dear Friends and Colleagues,

In July we shared the idea of establishing an endowed scholarship fund in honor of our friend and colleague, Dr. Patrick Draves, who passed away ten months ago. Today, we are pleased to share with you progress that has been made toward the goal of $10,000, the amount needed to fund an endowed scholarship at Saint Leo. We are most grateful to all who have honored Patrick’s memory and his commitment to scholarship, teaching, and his students with their gift to the fund. Memorial gifts received from Patrick’s colleagues, former students, family, and friends total $8,475.

Only $1,525 is needed to endow the scholarship, in which one $500 research scholarship will be given to one student each year. It isn’t too late for your gift to be added to the fund!

Please join us today by sending your gift to the Dr. Patrick Draves Memorial Endowed Scholarship.
