Ohio University's official health insurer Medical Mutual provided scholarship endowments to the university in support of President McDavis' Urban Scholarship Program. Medical Mutual's preferences are needy students from Cleveland Public School system.

"The investment made by Medical Mutual reflects vital investments in our society and our tomorrow," said Christine Taylor, assistant to the president.

Jared Chaney, Medical Mutual's chief communications officer, said, "We entered into scholarship arrangements to allow someone who could not otherwise afford higher education to be able to go to college."

Maya Lin will speak next Tuesday at the University of Dallas about the discipline of architecture and her design for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. At the age of 20, Lin competed against internationally known professional designers for the chance to design the monument dedicated to the men and women who lost their lives during the war. As a young Asian woman, Lin became one of the most controversial artists in the United States when Vietnam veterans and the public attacked her design.

Lin recently designed the earthwork installation that highlights Ohio University's Bicentennial Park.

Lin is the daughter of the late Henry Lin who was a ceramic artist and the dean of Ohio University's school of art. Her mother was Julia Lin, a professor of Asian and English literature who had immigrated to the United States from China

Ohio University?s Sales Centre, organized by Executive Director Ken Hartung, offers a 28-credit sales certificate to students who are looking for work experience in sales. The program is a mix of coursework, professional development and networking. To complete the program, students participate in an eight-week, 300-hour internship with a major sales corporation.

The program, found within the school of business, was approved by the board of trustees in 1999.

ComDoc, Inc. jumped on board to participate in the program after General Manager Pat Summers met Hartung at an Ohio University career fair. ComDoc had developed a similar program for interns through its human resources department to present to colleges, and the two programs seemed to mesh together. ComDoc is the largest independent distributor of Ricoh brand copiers and fax machines in the United States.

Ohio University seniors and Sales Centre interns Heather Clingerman and Tara Tingquist worked for ComDoc this past summer, working eight to five Monday through Thursday. In addition to the credit, they received a stipend and had real sales goals to achieve to receive a bonus. Frank Pacetta, central region president of ComDoc said the women became valuable members of the company.
