Founded by Dr. LeRoy T. Davis with preference given to students majoring in nursing.
Sandra Davis was born in Uniontown, Pennsylvania and studied at Bethany College in Bethany, West Virginia. She continued her studies at the University of Maryland Nursing School. She moved to Frederick when she married LeRoy Davis, a man she met on a blind date. While her husband attended medical school, Mrs. Davis pursued her nursing career. When her husband started his medical practice, Mrs. Davis concentrated more on the home, raising their three children and community volunteer work. To honor the memory and legacy of his wife of 53 years, Dr. Davis turned to the Community Foundation to create The Sandra J. Davis Memorial Scholarship Fund. The Fund awards scholarships, with preference given to those majoring in nursing as Mrs. Davis had done.
