USD SON’s First Yvonise Augustin Scholarship Awardee!
Second-year MEPN student Kaitlyn MacNeil is the first student to be awarded the Yvonise Augustin Scholarship. The Scholarship was founded by second-year MEPN student Diana Appleby after an international medical mission to Haiti. There, she met Yvonise Augustin, a 15 year old girl with a heart condition. Yvonise’s condition, though treatable, was not caught in time, and she passed away. Diana wanted to honor her memory by creating an annual scholarship in Yvonise’s name. To learn more about Diana, Yvonise and the Scholarship, please click here.
