KMF and Stegner

Hey Everyone,

Tonight, The Katie Memorial Foundation (KMF) will be awarding the Katie Evans Memorial Scholarship as part of an alumni event in Miami hosted by the FIU Alumni Association and The Robert Stempel School of Public Health at FIU (Katie's graduate school alma mater).  This afternoon, KMF will be meeting to formalize our board and to go over all of the ins and outs of the organization.  You can learn most of the details about KMF and its mission by visiting our website.  Some 30 friends and family members are flying in from Illinois, Indiana, Texas, Ohio, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and throughout Florida, to attend the event.  I'm looking forward to writing more about the event, and KMF, next week.

Also, I wanted to let you all know that I found out yesterday that I will be a Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University this fall.  I will post more details on this sometime next week.
