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.
