Dr. Jeremy A. Matchett Excellence in Pharmacy Award
The Jeremy A. Matchett Excellence in Pharmacy Award was established in 2005 in memory of Dr. Matchett, a longtime KU School of Pharmacy faculty member. It is given annually to a fifth year student who receives $1,000 in tuition assistance for one year. The award is based on the following criteria:
1. Demonstrated excellence in academic achievement to include critical technical thinking, questioning, appetite for continued learning, objectivity, honesty, integrity, and the highest of ethical standards.
2. Genuine, compassionate and unselfish attitude to effectively serve patients, colleagues and the art of pharmacy in trying to “make things better.”
3. Personal enthusiasm, initiative and drive for the pursuit of the practice of professional pharmacy–which Dr. Matchett strived to achieve himself, and to instill in others.
Anna K. and Lester E. Hey Scholarship
The Anna K. and Lester E. Hey Scholarship is given annually to a well-rounded, motivated Baldwin High School senior who plans to continue study at a community college, technical school, college or university. Selection is based on the student’s application, work history, leadership and activities, and a teacher recommendation.
The award is made in memory of longtime Baldwin residents Lester and Anna Hey. Lester Hey graduated from Baldwin High School in 1935, and the couple’s four children were also Baldwin High School graduates. Lester was a co-owner of the family business, Hey Machinery Company, where he and his brother Bill manufactured wheels for airplane tires.
Lester and Anna Hey were strong believers in education and hard work, and sought to instill these qualities in their children and grandchildren.
The Lester E. and Anna K. Hey Scholarship was established at the Douglas County Community Foundation by their children and friends to help Baldwin High School students achieve their personal goals through education.
The student receives $500 for the first year, and is eligible to receive $250 per year for up to three additional years.
