Liberal Arts Scholarship Fund Established in Memory of
Linda Fisher Reese
It has been six years since Linda Fisher Reese (NC '91) lost her battle with cancer at the age of 37. This past Fall, her husband, Ted Reese (S&E '92), and family worked with Tulane University to establish the Linda Fisher Reese Memorial Scholarship Endowed Fund. The fund honors Linda Reese's legacy at Newcomb College and the many friendships she formed during her college years. "Our hope has always been to remember Linda in her happier times of life. Much of that time came easily during her years at Tulane" said Reese.
