Corvallis woman awarded scholarship
Rachel Lee of Corvallis has been awarded the $1,000 James R. Naibert Scholarship for 2013.
Lee is starting her third year of graduate school at Pacific University in Forest Grove, working toward her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree. The scholarship, offered by The Corvallis Clinic Foundation, is named in honor of James R. Naibert and is awarded to a college sophomore or above who is studying in a health-related profession, such as a physician, nursing, technical profession or pharmaceutical studies.
During her second year in the doctoral program, Lee performed clinical work at Oregon Health & Science University, where she worked with patients in orthopedics, aquatic therapy and chronic pain.
This is the third time Lee is receiving financial support from The Corvallis Clinic Foundation as she pursues a career of caring for others. Lee was the 2011 recipient of the Naibert Scholarship, and had previously been awarded the Riley Scholarship from The Corvallis Clinic Foundation.
Lee hopes to return to Corvallis as a physical therapist. A 2007 graduate of Crescent Valley High School, she is the daughter of Marianne Clausing-Lee and Kevin Lee of Corvallis.
