SIU med school announces Landecker Memorial Award
Mary Katelyn Lowe has received a monetary award from the Dr. Hildegard C. Landecker Memorial Endowment Fund at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. Lowe is the 31st recipient of the award, which is given annually to a freshman female medical student with high academic standing.
Lowe is the daughter of Barry and Kathy Lowe of Normal. She is a graduate of Normal Community High School (2009) and Texas A & M University, where she earned her bachelor’s degrees in medical engineering and forensic science (2013).
The Landecker fund was established in 1982 by the late Manfred Landecker, Ph.D., who was on the political science faculty at SIU Carbondale, in memory of his mother, who was a pediatrician.
