He was instrumental in creating the cardiology program at Driscoll in the late 1960's and the scholarship was created to honor his memory. Scholarships are awarded annually to applicants to former and/or current cardiac patients of Driscoll Children's Hospital. Donations, along with the proceeds from the Annual Book and Uniform Sale help to fund the scholarship.
