"These highly competitive scholarships honor the name and life of Dr. Mahadeo Chand and represent his legacy of academic excellence, 'Service above Self', and leadership," stated Scholarship Chairman Dr. David Loeper on behalf of his scholarship committee.
 
Dr. Shail Jain, daughter of Dr. Mahadeo Chand, was accompanied by her mother and her family. She delivered the keynote address. "As we reflect on the wisdom of my father's words and his years of selfless service, I challenge you scholarship winners today to do two things: First, become involved with your community, your family, your friends and your future and second, be passionate in your dreams, thoughts, words and actions. If you remember this and do this, you will be successful in making a positive impact on changing your own life and the lives of the people you meet and the world in which we live."
 
Dr. Shail Jain thanked everyone for coming and concluded, 'Today‚Äôs scholars will become tomorrow's community and world leaders'.  Congratulations Class of 2019!"
