Flannery, Thomas Edward Endowed Scholarship
The Thomas Edward Flannery Endowed Scholarship was established in 2013 through a gift from the estate of the late Sally Flannery Orrok. It was Mrs. Orrok's intention to establish this scholarship in memory of her son, Thomas. Thomas and his brother, Michael, both lived with muscular dystrophy. They both attended The University of Akron in the late 1970s before passing away from complications related to their illness. Mrs. Orrok was grateful to the faculty, staff, and students who assisted her sons during their time at The University of Akron.
The Thomas Edward Flannery Endowed Scholarship will be awarded to an undergraduate student at The University of Akron who is pursuing a degree while facing physical disabilities, challenges, or limitations. Selection of recipients will be made by the director of the Office of Accessibility or appropriate designee.
