Ulman Cancer Fund honors eight with college scholarships

The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults in Columbia has awarded $9,000 in eight college scholarships.

One of the recipients, Andrew Gnagey, was awarded the 2002 Marilyn Yetso Memorial College Scholarship. The $1,000 award was established by the Ulman Cancer Fund and Brock Yetso, a graduate of Centennial High School in Ellicott City, in honor of his mother, Marilyn, who died of colon cancer March 17, 2000.

Gnagey, also a graduate of Centennial High, lost his father, John, a math teacher at Dunloggin Middle School, to a brain tumor in July 1999.

Recipients of the 2002 Matt Stauffer Memorial Scholarship are Amanda Valenzuela, Meghan DeBruycker, Catherine Beglan, Joseph Harrold, John Wu, Larrie Thomas and Adriane Riddle.

The award was established to support the needs of college students diagnosed with cancer. At the time of his death, Stauffer was a student at Williams College in Massachusetts and captain of the men's varsity soccer team. The award honors the spirit and courage that Stauffer displayed.
