Carson Tahoe Medical Team Creates Recurring Annual Science Scholarship for Western Nevada College Students


Several months ago, Carson Tahoe Health was so saddened to lose Dr. Jack L. Davis, a trusted friend and part of the Carson Tahoe family for over 15 years. And although he is no longer with us, Dr. Davis’ contributions and legacy of support continue to make a positive impact throughout the Carson Tahoe medical system and community.

As a natural science enthusiast, Dr. Davis enjoyed many visits to the Western Nevada College ‘Observatory’ during his lifetime. Inspired by his passion for science, and understanding the value of a solid community college education, the Medical Staff of Carson Tahoe Health has pulled together to create a $2,000 recurring annual scholarship – the “Jack L. Davis Memorial Scholarship.”

This memorial scholarship is designed to support and encourage science professionals of tomorrow, by contributing $1,000 each year to two Western Nevada College students pursuing degrees in the sciences. Carson Tahoe’s Medical Staff is grateful for the opportunity to honor Dr. Davis in such a personalized and meaningful way, one that can be felt by aspiring science professionals year after year. The medical staff hopes that by supporting science education at Western Nevada College, they are contributing to bright futures for generations to come.
