SIU Med School Announces Landecker Memorial Award
Terah L. Cheatham has received a monetary award from the Dr. Hildegard C. Landecker Memorial Endowment Fund at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. Cheatham is the 28th recipient of the award, which is given annually to a freshman female medical student with high academic standing. Cheatham is the daughter of Craig and Julie Cheatham of Polo. She is a graduate of Polo Community High School (2006) and DePaul University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences (2010).
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.
