The Joan Kenny Scholarship Fund
I am writing to respectfully request that you join those of us who knew and loved Joan Kenny in honoring her more than 30 years of service to Stony Brook University. I had the honor and privilege to work with Joan for most of her 20 years in the College as she tirelessly went about providing for the needs of our undergraduate students. While it is impossible to adequately express our appreciation for her unconditional efforts on behalf of students, we can take a step in that direction in paying tribute to her life and legacy by establishing a scholarship in her name. Whether you are a student, alumnus, or fellow member of the University community, I'm sure you will agree that Joan epitomized what Stony Brook itself has come to represent: a tireless and steadfast commitment to excellence in undergraduate education. She touched the lives of thousands of students over the years, helped them to complete their education and move on to meaningful careers. It is only fitting that we honor her. I sincerely hope that you will join me in ensuring that Joan's legacy of dedication to students lives on for future generations.
Yacov Shamash, Dean
