McKenzie Family Scholarships
University of Arizona marketing and finance graduate Keith S. McKenzie understands the value of a quality education. That's why he has contributed more than $100,000 to scholarships and other areas at The University of Arizona. McKenzie has three endowment funds in honor of UA alumni family members - his former wife, Carolyn, now deceased, and his two children, Regan and Logan.
The Dr. Carolyn Keaton McKenzie Memorial Scholarship in the College of Pharmacy
In the late 1990s, McKenzie's late, former wife, Carolyn Keaton McKenzie, as a mother of two, began her first year as a UA pharmacy student. Unfortunately, that year she suffered a stroke causing her to drop out of school for a short time. Once recovered, Carolyn completed her first three years of pharmacy education, but during her fourth year she had a brain aneurism and died. In 2002, the McKenzie family established the Dr. Carolyn Keaton McKenzie Memorial Scholarship Endowment in her honor. She was awarded a posthumous PharmD degree in May 2003. Scholarship recipients are fourth-year, non-traditional students enrolled in the College of Pharmacy.
Regan McKenzie Callister Scholarship Endowment in Education
Since 2001, McKenzie has awarded $1,000 scholarships each year to an outstanding upper-division student in the College of Education. In 2005, he created an endowment, the Regan McKenzie Callister Scholarship, in honor of his daughter. Regan received her bachelor's and master's degrees in education from the UA. Recipients of the scholarship are full-time undergraduate students who maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or higher and demonstrate a desire of pursuing a career in education.
Logan Keaton McKenzie Scholarship Endowment in Finance
Since 2001, McKenzie has awarded $1,000 scholarships each year to a worthy upper-division finance student in the Eller College of Management. In 2005, he endowed the scholarship after his son, Logan Keaton McKenzie, who graduated in 2000 from Eller with a bachelor's degree in finance. Logan received his MBA in 2006 from Arizona State University. Recipients of the scholarship are upper-division finance students who demonstrate exceptional academic ability, and who have shown promise in and dedication to a finance career.
