Doris Day establishes an annual scholarship in memory of her son, Terry MelcherMay 31, 2007 No Comments
In May 2007, the first veterinary student was honoured with a new scholarship founded by Doris. The annually presented veterinary scholarship in shelter medicine was set-up this year in memory of Doris’s son Terry Melcher who passed away in 2004.
The first “Doris Day & Terry Melcher Scholarship” was created with funds donated by Doris’s non-profit organisation the Doris Day Animal Foundation and from monies left to a Terry Melcher memorial fund. The star is said to have wanted to make this donation to the University of California, Davis as a way of acknowledging the wonderful care that their professionals had provided for her animals.
