Scholarships awarded in honor of Dr. Thomas Gleason
Two students have been selected to receive scholarships in honor of Dr. Thomas Gleason.
Gleason, who passed away in February, was a Wareham physician who served the community for more than 38 years. A memorial scholarship in his honor was established to support Wareham students pursuing careers in medicine.
Grace Lerner, a 2020 Upper Cape Tech graduate, received a $1,000 scholarship. Lerner has been working as a Certified Nursing Assistant in an assisted living residence for more than a year, and considers nursing to be her passion. She will attend the Campbell University School of Nursing.
Jenna Iacobucci studies biology at Emmanuel College and plans to pursue a career as either a Physician Assistant or a Nurse Practitioner with a specialization in pediatrics or pulmonology. She received the $500 scholarship.
The Dr. Thomas Gleason Scholarship will be awarded annually to a Wareham resident accepted into an educational program in a medical or allied health field. More information is available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
