Morris Opp Scholarship

 

Morris Opp was a respiratory therapist at MeritCare Hospital in Fargo, ND, from October, 1983 to May, 1987. He completed respiratory therapy school at Sioux Valley Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD, in 1977, and became registered in 1979. After completing the respiratory therapy program he completed his bachelor's degree at Augustana College, also in Sioux Falls. He worked as a respiratory therapist in South Dakota until beginning work at MeritCare Hospital. Morris had been previously diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease, but at the time he joined the staff at MeritCare, he was in remission.

Morris eventually moved into a position as supervisor of the float team in the respiratory care department. He was well respected by his employees and peer associates as a therapist and leader in the department. Morris was active in our professional organization as well, serving as the treasurer of the Dakota Society for Respiratory Therapy during the mid-1980's. In 1987, hoping for a cure of his Hodgkin's disease, Morris pursued the possibility of a bone marrow transplant. This was performed in Omaha, Nebraska, in May of 1987. Following the surgery, and the subsequent chemotherapy, Morris developed numerous complications, from which he did not recover. He died on May 12, 1987. Morris is remembered by those who knew him for his love of life and positive attitude, his awesome sense of humor, and the way he treated others with a sense of respect and fairness. In honor of his memory as a respected professional and friend, the North Dakota Society for Respiratory Care established the Morris Opp Scholarship, which is presented annually to a deserving student enrolled in a respiratory care program in North Dakota.

Michael Sologuk Memorial Scholarship image of Michael Sologuk


The Michael Sologuk Memorial Scholarship in Respiratory Therapy was established in memory of Michael Sologuk (right) by his family and friends in January 2000. The purpose of the scholarship is to promote education and understanding of cystic fibrosis among respiratory therapists. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disorder that affects many functions of the body: breathing, digestion and reproduction, and is the #1 genetic killer of young people.

Mike Sologuk, a life-long resident of North Dakota, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when he was in second grade. Although his health was always a concern, he married and raised a family. In 1992, he took a medical retirement from Sears due to his growing respiratory problems. In 1996, he qualified for a bilateral lung transplant, and on July 5, 1997, he received a call from the University of Minnesota that he should fly to Minneapolis and undergo his transplant. 
 
After a few months of recovery, he felt better than he had in years. He decided to finish his college degree at the University of Mary, Fargo, where he was awarded his Bachelor of Science in business management in June 1999. In September 1999, he contracted a fungal infection and was hospitalized at the Fairview University Hospital, Minneapolis, where he died on October 7, 1999. His wife, Sally, and their daughter, Brynn, have established the scholarship in Mike's memory with memorials from numerous family and friends. It is their hope that the scholarship will enable deserving students in respiratory therapy to complete their studies and make significant contributions to the health and comfort of cystic fibrosis patients and their families. Should you wish to contribute to this scholarship, please make checks payable to: NDSU Development Foundation (memo: Michael Sologuk Scholarship), and send to: NDSU Development Foundation, P.O. Box 5144, Fargo, ND 58105-5144.

Application Procedure Applicants will be enrolled in the Respiratory Care program at NDSU and have been accepted into the internship. Applications will be reviewed based on the following criteria:

  • Personal Ambitions and Goals (25%)
  • Student Activities (25%)
  • Cystic Fibrosis Essay (50%)

Applications are reviewed anonymously by a committee consisting of the academic and program directors of the NDSU/Sanford RC program and a representative of the Michael Sologuk family. Each category will be rated on a scale of 1-10 by each committee member. After all applicants have been evaluated the scores will be tallied. The applicant with the highest score will be the recipient of the Michael Sologuk Memorial Scholarship. In the event of a tie, the applicants involved in the tie will be re-evaluated by the committee using the above formula until the tie is broken. Applications are available from the Department of Allied Sciences. Deadline for applications: July 1.
