Dr. Mary Brigid Gallagher Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was established in 1985 as a memorial to a dedicated teacher. Dr. Gallagher was a professor in the Speech department and was well liked by all. Dr. Gallagher died unexpectedly, at age 64, only four months before her retirement. Her friends, family and faculty created the scholarship in order to provide financial assistance to students in the Speech department.
The scholarship contact is the Chair of the Radford University Foundation Board of Directors, Ms. Nancy Artis.
