Student one of five statewide to win scholarship
May 3, 2010
KALAMAZOO--A Western Michigan University student is among the first to receive a scholarship from the Michigan Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation.
Megan Kovach, a speech pathology and audiology student from Schoolcraft, Mich., received an award of $500 and was honored last month along with five other students from Central and Eastern Michigan universities and Michigan State and Wayne State universities at the foundation's first dinner and awards celebration held in Kalamazoo.
Along with the dinner and awards celebration, the evening included remarks by Ann Fergemann, vice president of donor relations for the Kalamazoo Community Foundation. Sandra Glista, a WMU master clinical faculty specialist in speech pathology and audiology and a founding member of the foundation, played a key role in organizing the event.
The foundation's purpose is to provide scholarships for students preparing to become speech-language pathologists or audiologists. A not-for-profit organization, it was founded in 2006 in affiliation with the Michigan Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
