Marilyn Miller Quintana Moline Fellowship
The Marilyn Miller Quintana Moline Fellowship is a permanent endowment for the speech and hearing science program area at the College of Health Solutions. Funding for this scholarship is made possible by annual earnings of the Arizona State University Foundation account and by memorial gifts.
Marilyn Miller Quintana Moline served as the director of speech pathology services at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center and on the Arizona Speech and Hearing Association executive board. Her desire to help others was evident in her love for treating neurologically impaired patients, as well as her abilities to mentor new clinicians and students.
As a tribute to her memory, her husband, John R. Moline, established the Marilyn Miller Quintana Moline Fellowship Endowment to provide financial aid to those seeking a profession in the art and science of speech-language pathology.
