On April 13, Dr. KVK Murthy and wife Kamakshi Murthy presented the Sleepy Eye Healthcare Foundation with a $25,000 donation to renovate the currently unused second surgical suite into an endoscopy suite at Sleepy Eye Medical Center. The Murthys also pledged an additional $25,000 (to be donated in 2018) toward the Murthy Medical Scholarship fund. Moneys from the scholarship fund will be dispersed, in increments, to scholarship winners over the next several years. The Murthy Medical Scholarship is available to two high school seniors at Sleepy Eye Public School and two high school seniors at St. Mary’s Catholic School each spring. Eligible applicants include those who plan to attend college or technical school in the fall, in a health-related area. 2017 scholarship winners will be announced in the month of May.
