HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — The dean of Marshall University's medical school has established a scholarship at the school in honor of his wife.

The university has announced that the Mary R. Shapiro Scholarship is an endowed scholarship that will be awarded to a medical student who is a poster or oral presentation winner at the annual School of Medicine Research Day. The award is renewable for three additional years pending normal academic progress.

Dr. Joseph I. Shapiro and his wife came to Huntington in 2012 when he was named the fifth dean of the medical school. Mary Shapiro is a registered nurse and the daughter of a physician.
