A Legacy of Life-Affirming Courage
At the top of Shawn Potter’s to do list was to endow a scholarship at Bowling Green State University. His idea was not to create a traditional academic scholarship, but one that will forever benefit students whose lives are impacted by cancer. He was still working on that project when a second bout with cancer took his life Sept. 5, 2009.
