Daemen College recently held a celebration to recognize the generosity of Trustee Robert Chur and his family and to celebrate this year’s recipients of the Robert and Carol Chur Scholarship, which provides support to students in health and human services majors.
“We are deeply grateful to Bob, Carol and the entire Chur family for their generosity in establishing this scholarship, which reflects their extraordinary commitment to Daemen and our students,” said Daemen President Gary Olson. “With this scholarship, our students are receiving vital financial assistance to pursue a first-rate education at Daemen.”
In addition to honoring the Chur family, the event celebrated recipients of the 2018-19 Robert and Carol Chur Scholarship: Masson Bayne of Lyndonville, nursing major; Kari Brown of Kenmore, physical therapy major; Mary Kelkenberg of Clarence Center, physician assistant major; Rosalie Noyes of West Seneca, social work major; and Francess Verjes-Rosario of Brooklyn, social work major.
The $3,000 scholarship is awarded to Daemen students in good academic standing and in their third or fourth year of studies in health and human services majors.
“Our hope is for this scholarship to make college more affordable for students and to go on to use their talents to make a positive difference in their chosen profession,” said Chur.
