Friends and Colleagues,

As you will see in today’s newsletter, an endowed student scholarship in the name of Patrick Thomas Rose was graciously gifted to the UNLV School of Medicine. We are so grateful for the gift that helps make the dream of medical school possible for a deserving student. Endowed funds are critically important to medical schools -- they provide support for medical education and research today, tomorrow, and far into the future. Endowments are investments whose earnings are allocated each year to support the program or area designated by the endowment donor, while the remaining money remains in the endowment fund and continues to earn interest. As a result, the endowment lives on forever. The Rose family is understandably proud of their loved one’s legacy. 
As the author Maya Angelou observed: “If you’re going to live, leave a legacy. Make a mark on the world that can’t be erased.”
