ECU Names Three Brody Scholars

Three incoming medical students have been named ECU Brody Scholars, meaning they will get funding for 4 years of medical school tuition, living expenses, a self-designed summer enrichment program and community service projects.

Ismail Kassim of High Point, Alyssa D'Addezio of Concord and Zachary Sutton of Pink Hill each received the scholarship valued at about $112,000.

Since the program began in 1983, 128 students have received scholarships. About 70% of Brody Scholars remain in North Carolina to practice, and the majority of those stay in eastern North Carolina.
