Jasmine Harris, a rising senior in the health services management program, was the recipient of the Louise O. Burevitch Scholarship in Health Services Management.
The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial support to a student or students enrolled in the Department of Health Services and Information Management in the College of Allied Health Sciences at ECU who have a demonstrated commitment to the study of and to a career in health services management in eastern North Carolina.
Louise O. Burevitch, a North Carolina native, is the second largest donor to ECU's College of Allied Health Sciences.
Burevitch, who attended ECU for a short time in 1935, wanted to contribute to the charities and organizations that meant something to her, and ECU's College of Allied Health Sciences has been one beneficiary of her incredible generosity.
She always remembered going to ECU, and she chose healthcare because nurses and healthcare providers are an important part of her life.
Through her generosity, Burevitch created three scholarship programs in the College—the Louise O. Burevitch Endowed Scholarship in Health Services Management, the Louise O. Burevitch Scholarship in Occupational Therapy, and the Louise O. Burevitch Scholarship in Physician Assistant Studies.
