The Karen Rothwell Vivian Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Karen Rothwell Vivian Memorial Scholarship Fund (KRVMSF) was established by Bill Vivian, husband of the late Karen Rothwell-Vivian, M.S. Ed., M.A., CCA-A, LSLS Cert. AVT
Karen was a clinical audiologist who spearheaded the original certification of auditory-verbal therapists. The fund honors the memory of her as one of the nation's leading auditory-verbal therapists by providing financial assistance to professionals who choose to use the auditory-verbal approach to teach children with hearing loss to listen and speak.
Each year the fund provides a financial award to an individual student of the JTC-Mount Saint Mary's University LA Graduate Program. The recipient is chosen by the fund's advisory board based on the aims and ideals espoused by Karen.
