Alumni Establish Scholarship Endowment
Written by Adam Zewe
Bradley Trattner, DDS '88, and Adam Eisner, DDS '89, spearheaded the establishment of a scholarship fund to support UMSOD students. As trustees of the Baltimore alumni chapter of the Alpha Omega dental fraternity, along with Todd Sarubin, DDS '85, and Arthur Goldvarg, DDS '80, they donated $100,000 to the school of dentistry. The gift creates the Baltimore Alumni Chapter of Alpha Omega Endowment Fund.
The fund will award approximately $5,000 annually to a rising senior dental student. Award recipients must exhibit academic achievement and a commitment to provide dental services to the community. Alpha Omega trustees, along with school of dentistry officials, will select the scholarship recipient each year. "This gift not only benefits students, but also sets an example for others to follow. Gifts like this really do make a difference," remarks Dean Christian S. Stohler, DMD, DrMedDent.
As alumni, the trustees are excited to support their alma mater and help future graduates become leaders in the dental profession. The endowment is important for the future of Alpha Omega, a Jewish dental fraternity that was founded at UMSOD nearly 100 years ago. The scholarship enables the fraternity to continue making a positive impact at the school, Dr. Eisner states. "It is extremely rewarding to know that the Baltimore Alumni Chapter of Alpha Omega has left an indelible mark and a legacy for future generations of dental students," he concludes.
