Legacy of former faculty member continues with anonymous gift
Nearly 30 years after the Correne E. Treguboff Endowed Memorial Scholarship was founded, an anonymous graduate of the UC Davis physician assistant program stepped forward to honor Correne, who served as a faculty and program director of the nurse practitioner and physician assistant programs in the 1980s, with a new gift. Through a generous bequest expectancy, this alumnus established the Correne E. Treguboff Pediatric Award for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. In addition to the bequest expectancy, this alumnus also started ongoing gifts to help support students during his lifetime. This generosity demonstrates so well the legacy of an endowed gift.
