Franklin University Receives Gift to Create the Greta J. Russell Medical Mutual of Ohio Scholarship

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 01, 2015

Franklin University, one of the leading educators of working adults, is proud to announce the establishment of the Greta J. Russell Medical Mutual of Ohio Scholarship. The scholarship is made possible through the generous gift of $100,000 from Medical Mutual of Ohio. Ms. Russell presented the gift on behalf of Medical Mutual to University representatives, Dr. David Decker, President, and Bonnie Quist, Vice President of Advancement & Strategic Relations.

“We are grateful to Medical Mutual of Ohio and Greta Russell for helping provide the opportunity to help meet the needs of adult students who have the ambition to continue their education in combination with other responsibilities,” said Dr. Decker. “It is a gift like this that demonstrates how business and higher education can work together to provide a quality education to students who want to make a difference.”

Russell recently received an Honorary Doctorate from Franklin University, is a member of the boards of Medical Mutual of Ohio and of the Columbus-Franklin County Finance Authority. She recently completed a seven-year term on the Accountancy Board of Ohio, is national president of the Circle-Lets, Inc., and is a lifetime member of the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc., for which she served two terms as the national president. She was formerly the comptroller for the Ohio State Treasurer’s Office, and recently retired as the controller for The Ohio State University.

Medical Mutual of Ohio established this scholarship in honor and recognition of Ms. Russell’s many contributions to our local and national community. The Greta J. Russell Medical Mutual of Ohio Scholarship is designed to financially assist those undergraduate and graduate students pursuing an Interactive Field Experience course, focusing on a research project to address a problem, dilemma, or issue in their community or the broader society.
