Weigel Winners: Finding the "Why"

Some high school seniors head to college with their major in mind and their life planned out ahead of them, and others hope to find their passion by trying new things.

The Gunther and Lee Weigel Medical School Scholarship is for those Elks scholars who found their “why” in pursuing a career in medicine.
