Nov. 8, 2016 - King’s students Kayla Gegaris, Amanda Keegan, and Katherine Mandicz have been awarded the Peyton Walker Foundation Scholarship, a scholarship that was created to aid physician assistant students.

Peyton Walker was a physician assistant major at King’s when she died unexpectedly in November 2013 from sudden cardiac arrest. The Peyton Walker Foundation was created to raise awareness and survival rates for people who go into sudden cardiac arrest. Selection for the scholarship is based on academic achievement and financial need.   The three students were each awarded $5,000.  This is the third year the scholarships have been awarded.

Gegaris, Keegan, and Mandicz are all in the final year of the College’s five-year physician assistant master’s degree program.
