Culpepper Exum Scholarship for Kidney Patients in KS and MO
Established as a memorial to her brother, Beth Witten, nephrology social worker, created the Culpepper Exum Scholarship for Kidney Patients in Kansas and Missouri. Sadly, Witten's brother lost his fight in 2002, he had diabetes and was on dialysis prior to his death from heart disease. This scholarship is a way for her and her family to keep his memory alive while making a difference in the lives of other kidney patients from his community.
This scholarship is intended to help two deserving dialysis or transplant patients to attend an accredited post-secondary educational program. The scholarship award is for a $1,000 scholarship paid directly to the institution. Two scholarships will be awarded this school year—one to a Kansas resident and one to a Missouri resident.
