The Rotary Club of Miami awarded a record $69,000 in scholarships to Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine (HWCOM) students this year.
Twenty-seven students were chosen to receive the Rotary Club’s Thomas Brown McClelland (TBM) Trust Scholarship for the 2018-19 academic year. They were honored at a special pinning ceremony on February 22 headlined by club treasurer and past president, Philip Seipp.
Dr. Rebecca Toonkel, HWCOM assistant dean for academic advising, also received a pin as a past McClelland Scholar.
The scholarship is named after the late Thomas B. McClelland, a professional horticulturist and a dedicated member of the Rotary Club of Miami, who left money in his will for an endowment fund establishing a scholarship for medical students who graduated from Miami-Dade County high schools.
Since 2009, Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine students have received more than $260,000 in TBM scholarships.
