Madeline Farmer and MiKaela White will be recognized at the 23rd Annual Dean’s Scholarship Golf Classic which takes place at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National on Friday, September 7, 2018.  The two students from the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM) are the recipients of a scholarship that provides financial assistance during their senior year at Auburn University. Both students are biomedical sciences majors/pre-med, and are seeking to attend medical school upon graduation. 

For Farmer, the news was could not have been given at a better time.  She received the notification of this scholarship when her grandfather had just passed away.  Even though she was unable to share this important news with him, being given this scholarship brightened the spirit of her entire family during this difficult time.  Farmer explains, “My heart is eternally grateful to be recognized for this honor.”

Working in a rural setting or even abroad as a future obstetrician-gynecologist is how Farmer envisions her future.  She also enjoys cooking, journaling and reading.

White from Riverdale, Georgia, wants to become a dermatologist.  “I am endlessly thankful to my mom who has always been my number one supporter and encourages me to fulfill my dreams,” shares White.     

She embraces nature in her free time.  White loves to explore new parks and trails when she is not studying.  She also is curious about different cuisines and is always checking out new restaurants.
