Rachael and Dave Schmidt and children August and Conner, renewed their scholarship to support a student in the Phyllis and Harvey Sandler School of Social Work who attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The scholarship is being provided for the second year in a row and is in memory of the service dog Kol who touched the lives of many, including the Schmidt Family. In addition to providing comfort and support to the students at MSD, Kol also made his rounds at FAU over the years to help calm students during finals week. Click to support.
FAU students studying for final exams enjoy Kol, the therapy dog, as a stress relief break.
