Impact of Gifts

“I’ve worked hard and succeeded. Now it’s time to give back to a profession that I love – and to make a difference for future dental hygienists,” says Diane McHenry, longtime Eastern professor who recently gifted $50,000 to Eastern to create an endowed scholarship. McHenry, who helped establish the EWU Department of Dental Hygiene and is now retired, created the scholarship to support single parents who face financial obstacles while pursuing degrees and careers as dental hygienists as the means to a brighter future for their families. The fund helps with tuition and program incidentals, such as laptops, dental instruments, uniforms and board exam testing fees for state certification.
