Jeanne L. Scheibler
Jeanne Scheibler Scholarship to support pharmacy students in need.
Class of '41
Jeanne created a trust fund for the Jeanne Scheibler Scholarship to support pharmacy students in need. She left a personal message to her future scholarship recipients.
“I wish them good luck and want them to study hard. You have to concentrate, even if your professor is boring, not go out and be playboys or playgirls,” Scheibler said. “After you graduate, start saving a nest egg; don’t spend everything you make. When I was in school, the only women on campus were in pharmacy and law, so the distractions were plentiful.”
Setting an example for students she later would help, Scheibler studied hard and was not distracted. She graduated first in her class. By establishing a planned gift to the UF College of Pharmacy, her legacy will forever be linked to a college recognized for its commitment to excellence in educating pharmacy students of the highest levels of promise and achievement.
