School of Medicine alumni establish scholarship for aspiring pediatricians


Drs. J. Thomas Meadows Jr. and Andrea N. (Lewis) Meadows, who are husband and wife, have established an endowed scholarship for aspiring pediatricians with the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.

Based in Knoxville, Tennessee, Tom Meadows is a neonatologist and Andrea Meadows is a pediatrician. Both are graduates of the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, Class of 2004.

The scholarship, known as the Meadows’ Pediatric Scholarship, is for fourth-year medical students at Marshall who are interested in pediatrics. The first recipient of the award is Brittany L. Wall, Class of 2016, of Ashland, Kentucky.

“Tom and Andrea each found their passion in caring for infants and children,” said Linda S. Holmes, director of development and alumni affairs for the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. “Now, they are ‘paying it forward’ and making the dreams of the next generation of pediatricians and neonatologists come true.”
