Casey Gazdik Memorial Scholarship
Casey was a UWSP Health
Promotion major in 2002 when he was suddenly struck ill and died from
blastomycosis. Casey loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and
fisherman. This scholarship was created by his friends at UWSP and
initial funding came from a walk-a-thon organized by Casey’s friends and
classmates. One student in particular, Trisha Mattke, was instrumental
in creating and raising funds for this endowment. This scholarship is
available to Health Promotion majors who have high financial need.
Other criteria include academic achievement which is imperative for
success in the field and involvement in extra-curricular activities.
