Anthony E. Mickunas Scholarship

In 1987, Phyllis Harrington established this scholarship in loving memory of her father, Anthony E. Mickunas (1909-1987). Several family members, and the Jacquelyn H. and Francis A. Harrington Foundation, made financial contributions to this endowment in Anthony’s honor.

Each year, the scholarship is awarded to two students – one from Worcester and one from Norwood, MA – who plan to study medicine or a related field in college.
