Rachel Singer Memorial Scholarship
Rachel Singer was a Volunteer in Batangas from 1963-65 and worked for the Peace Corps in Washington D.C. for several years after her return. For the past nearly 25 years, Rachel was a pivotal player at the New York Blood Center. In addition to her duties as Assistant to the President, she often served as a bone marrow courier, bringing that life source to people all over the world. Rachel was a talented singer who originally stirred our souls in Manila’s pubs, an avid folk dancer, tennis player, runner, and aspiring golfer. But most of all, she was a good friend to all who knew and loved her. At the time of her death from stomach cancer on June 29, 2007 at the age of 67, she was planning a return trip to the Philippines. This scholarship honors her memory and is intended to help complete that circle for her.
