“The philosophy of Dr. Malcom Bray and Mary Bray was to always share the blessings they had received in life by giving back to the community,” said Megan Wiles, Executive Director of Riverview Health Foundation. “We’re grateful that we can carry on their legacy through this scholarship and support those who are just beginning their journeys into the medical profession.”
The Dr. and Mrs. Malcolm Bray Medical Scholarship was established in 1993 through Riverview Health Foundation and is awarded to a graduating senior from each of the public high schools in Hamilton County wishing to pursue a career in the medical field. Each recipient is awarded a onetime $1,000 scholarship. More than 175 scholarships have been awarded to students since its inception.
The Bray’s support of Riverview Health runs deep. Dr. Bray was a scientist at Eli Lilly and Co. and a member of Riverview Health Foundation Board of Directors for 18 years. Mary Bray volunteered at Riverview Health for more than 40 years and her great-grandfather was instrumental in relocating Riverview Health to its current location.
