SUPPORTING THE PANCREATIC CANCER ACTION NETWORK, WHOSE MISSION IS TO ADVANCE RESEARCH, HELP PATIENTS, AND CREATE HOPE
The John Donohue Memorial Award, a one-time award of $1000, recognizes students who have demonstrated their commitment to the field of Classics by qualifying to renew their National Latin Exam Scholarship for all four years of undergraduate study. It is hoped that, no matter what field they pursue in the future, they will, like John, live a life enriched and inspired by all things Greek and Roman....and inspire others in turn.  
​​John Joseph Donohue died on January 27, 2014, after a brave 15-month battle with pancreatic cancer. He will be remembered for his warmth, quick wit, quiet guidance, and wisdom.
