ECU dental school’s first graduating class establishes endowment
According to the ECU School of Dental Medicine News, the first graduating class of East Carolina University dental school established an endowment to support patient care and student learning.
The endowed gift — the Inaugural Class Patient Care Endowment — received 100 percent participation by the 50 graduates and matching funds from the ECU Medical and Health Sciences Foundation. It currently stands at $33,000.
“The Class of 2015 takes great pride in the palpable impact that the school is already having on North Carolina, and we are inspired by our faculty’s commitment to service. Our dedication to carrying out the school’s mission and fulfilling our class pledge extends beyond our years here. It is with this in mind that we have established the patient fund,” said Dr. Kelly Walsh, class vice president, who co-presented the gift at the school’s convocation on May 8.
