Congratulations to Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS) student Isai Chavira for being selected as the recipient of the annual endowed scholarship from Southcentral Pathology Laboratory for spring 2024. Isai was nominated by faculty in the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences for his dedication and outstanding academic performance in the program. Jayron Banks, scholarship recipient in spring 2023, will continue to receive the scholarship in spring 2024. Congratulations Isai and Jayron.

The Southcentral Pathology Scholarship award was established in 2021 by Dr. Joel Alderson, president of Southcentral Pathology in Wichita, the largest group of surgical pathologists in southcentral Kansas. This generous award provides full-ride scholarships to two deserving students each year in the WSU MLS program. Recipients are chosen based on merit and financial need, and each student receives an equal amount of funds. This is the largest scholarship donation to the MLS program. We sincerely appreciate Dr. Alderson for his invaluable support to the WSU MLS program and its students.
