SCHUYLERVILLE — Austin Luna, a junior at Wesley College in Delaware, received the Theodore A.H. O’Brien Scholarship on March 15 at the college’s Founders Day. This scholarship is awarded to Medical Technology students who have achieved a minimum 3.0 grade-point average.
The estate of Col. Theo W. and Mrs. Francis O’Brien established the scholarship in 1978. It is named for Col. O’Brien’s father, who served on the Board of Trustees of the Wilmington Conference Academy in Delaware and whose daughter was a Wesley alumnus.
Luna graduated in 2014 from Schuylerville High School. He is majoring at Wesley College in human biology and is considering further study in medical school. Luna is planning a three-week trip to Portugal in May or June to observe doctors there as they practice.
