Patricia Weitsman Scholarship

April 1, 2014

Patty didn’t want flowers, so instead endow a scholarship at Ohio University.  This is from an email her husband sent out to her supporters:

Please visit Ohio.edu/ Give and note in the online form that the gift is in memory of Dr. Patricia Weitsman and request that funds be designated to The Patricia A. Weitsman Memorial Scholarship, or call (740) 593-0732 to make a gift via phone

She was such a great person, a terrific teacher and influential scholar.  I am glad that that her school will have something lasting to mark her memory and her contributions.
