Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine donates $100K for scholarships to El Paso Victims’ Education Fund

In wake of the devastating El Paso shooting that left 22 dead on August 3, the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) is giving $100,000 to support future scholarships for children who were affected by the massacre.

“We are deeply saddened about the tragic shooting in our sister city, El Paso,” says BCOM President, John Hummer. “With so many of our faculty, staff and students connected to El Paso — this truly hits close to home.”

Dozens of BCOM students, faculty and staff call El Paso home and regularly commute between Las Cruces, NM, and El Paso, TX.

“Our hearts are especially heavy for the children and teens who have lost a loved one,” Hummer says. “We hope this gift will help ease any future worries they have about their education; please know that the BCOM family is behind you and is here to help.”

The gift will go directly to the El Paso Community Foundation Victims’ Education Fund, which was established to provide tuition assistance and related expenses for university, college, trade or vocational school.
