The Susan G. Melkonian Memorial Scholarship Fund

Each May we honor the memory and generosity of our late member, Susan Melkonian. Susan was a long time member of the Network who left us a bequest upon her death. At our June luncheon, one of our scholarship receipients will be awarded the special scholarship named in Susan’s honor. We are able to provide these scholarships because of the good hearts and passion of our members to help others.
