The Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) Club thanks faculty, staff, alumni, friends and family of Kathleen (Szczsponik) Menard ’94 for their generous donations in support of endowing a MLT scholarship in her name. We would also like to thank all who attended the “Smirky” Strong Stroll on Nov. 4 at Lincoln Woods State Park. It was a very successful fundraiser, as we are close to reaching our goal for endowment of this scholarship.
The scholarship will be awarded to students in the MLT program based on the professional qualities Menard embodied during her education and career in the laboratory at The Miriam Hospital, East Side Clinical Laboratory, Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island, Sturdy Memorial Hospital, Kent Hospital and Dominion Diagnostics. She died in September 2016 of stage IV metastatic pancreatic cancer.
