The Johns Hopkins Neuroscience Scholars Program would like to extend our warmest sympathies to the family and colleagues of the late Lisa Chutjian, former chief development officer at the Alexander Bell Graham Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (AG Bell). In the words of program co-Director, Dr. Tilak Ratnanather:
Lisa was exceptionally both professional and cheerful in her work with AGBell. I will miss her enthusiasm and support for the College Financial Aid Committee and STEMM-HEAR which after two failed attempts with NSF will finally get NIH funding for five years this fall (two reviewers gave a mixture of 1s and 2s, making it fundable). She will be missed and the scholarship is a worthy recognition of her significant contributions to AGBell as well as her respect for college education.
Please honor her wishes with a donation to the scholarship in her name at AG Bell, furthering Lisa’s life’s work towards providing educational opportunities for students who are deaf/hard of hearing.
