Imogene Moyer Scholarship Recipient 2010Michele Bratina, a doctoral student in Criminology from Jensen Beach, Florida, has received the first Dr. Imogene Moyer Scholarship.

Established by Ayn Embar-Seddon O'Reilly D’00 and her husband, Dan, of Pittsburgh, the scholarship is awarded to female doctoral candidates in Criminology and is meant to cover incidental expenses.

O'Reilly, a Capella University faculty member, is the author of several forensics textbooks. She said she established the scholarship in honor of her mentor, Moyer, a longtime member of the Criminology faculty who died in 2009.
