The Morehead State University Foundation has announced the establishment of the Jackie Darling Memorial Scholarship.
Darling joined MSU’s Department of Imaging Sciences faculty in 1979 as an assistant professor before being promoted to associate professor. She completed doctoral courses at the University of Kentucky and received Master of Arts and Master of Science degrees from MSU.
Darling was certified through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists in radiography and mammography and was a recognized educator in radiologic technology at the national, state and local levels.
She passed away Feb. 7.
“Our family started the scholarship because teaching was truly her passion. She loved her career and mentoring the students through their educational journey,” said Darling’s daughter Sandra Glover. “We feel this was the best way to honor her. This scholarship helps to further the Imaging Science program to which she dedicated so much of her life.”
Darling had been faculty co-advisor to Sigma Alpha Chi and Chi Beta Gamma, student radiography clubs. A member of numerous committees, she served on the Governance, Tenure and Intercollegiate committees. She also served as a Faculty Senator.
Recipients of the scholarship shall be full-time students who are admitted to one of the Imaging Sciences programs. This includes the associate degree radiologic science program and/or the baccalaureate imaging science program.
Beginning in 2016-17, preference will be given to students in the associate degree program. Recipients should be identified as having financial need by MSU’s Office of Enrollment Services.
Scholarships will be awarded on an annual basis and the award amount may vary based on the available funds. The recipient will be selected by a committee and is a one-time award (not renewable).
Donations may be made to MSU Foundation Inc., Jackie Darling Memorial Scholarship, Palmer Development House, Morehead.
