2016

 

Gail and Barbara Riegle came to Malawi to present the 2016 Riegle Scholars with their awards.

Dr. Gail Riegle and his wife Barbara donated $10,000 to help fund scholarships for staff of the Blantyre Malaria Project. We hosted a lunch in their honor during their September visit to Malawi, when they attended the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the College of Medicine.

The lunch was very touching — everyone told how the scholarship had impacted their life — but the funniest part was when Dr. Riegle asked, “Now, I’m curious … have any of you ever had malaria?”

The BMP team just cracked up, and relayed that they’d had malaria “so many times” during their lives.
