The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program Class of 2017 joined together this summer to create a scholarship in memory of classmate, Logan James Humphrey. The scholarship they created is deeply linked to Logan’s memory as it is awarded to students in the DPT program who have an undergraduate degree unrelated to health and medicine. Logan entered the DPT program with an undergraduate degree in English. Out of admiration for his journey and enduring friendship, they created The Road Less Traveled Scholarship.
Logan graduated Cum Laude from Centre College before earning his Doctorate in Physical Therapy degree from the University of Kentucky. He worked as a physical therapist at ARK Rehab.
Jennifer Newman said, “The graduating class from UKDPT 2017 was close knit during the good times and now during the bad. We knew we wanted to come together to honor and remember Logan and his unique journey to finding PT.”
Linda Humphrey, Logan’s mother, said she is grateful for The Road Less Traveled Scholarship. “This scholarship honors Logan's memory in the most perfect way. It is even more special that it will benefit deserving students who share a similar background with Logan. With his love for education, his very giving nature, and his heart for helping others, we know Logan would be most proud.”
“We are so saddened by his passing but find solace that his legacy will live on through the contributions from alumni and others in the form of this scholarship,” said Jennifer.
