Mahdy and Frank Memorial Scholarships Established with SWOSU Pharmacy Foundation


Two memorial scholarship funds have been established with the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Pharmacy Foundation on the Weatherford campus.

SWOSU pharmacy graduate Dr. Sarah Fadel Mahdy (2007 graduate) of Durant established the Dr. Fadel Mahdy Memorial Scholarship in memory of her father. The scholarship will provide a $1,200 scholarship each year to a second-year pharmacy student.

“I haven’t forgotten what SWOSU did for me and I’m really excited to give back,” said Sarah Mahdy.

And, the Earl Wayne Frank Memorial Scholarship has been established by the family of Mr. Frank, who was a 1956 SWOSU pharmacy graduate from Seymour, Texas.  The fund will provide two $1,750 scholarships to deserving pharmacy students of the SWOSU College of Pharmacy.

"The memorial scholarships show a strong sense of pharmacy pride for SWOSU,” said Patti Harper, alumni development officer for the SWOSU College of Pharmacy.
