Shirley McGlinn MEDPREP Scholarship Endowment
For students in SIU’s MEDPREP program, finding the time and money to earn the necessary education for a career in medicine or dentistry is a daunting obstacle. Paying tuition and bills, while juggling classes, work and a personal life are daily reality. But the true reality is that it doesn’t have to be this difficult.
Shirley McGlinn, a long-time MEDPREP biology instructor, was much beloved by all who knew her. The Shirley McGlinn Memorial Endowed Scholarship will carry on Shirley’s legacy of unwavering support for MEDPREP students. Shirley was a dedicated educator, who brought a wealth of experience and passion to all she took on. She worked tirelessly to provide more than 1,000 MEDPREP students with an outstanding education through her innovative teaching. Shirley believed strongly in supporting students not just through teaching, but through mentorship and financial support.
