Dr. George W. Brown Memorial Scholarship

The Alaska Kids on the Run Fun Run for Kids of All Ages is a fund raiser for the Dr. George W. Brown Memorial scholarship to provide funds for graduates of Mat-Su high schools who plan careers in early childhood education. Dr. Brown worked with the Mat-Su schools for many years, starting in 1970 when he served as the Medical Director of the Alaska Child Study Center.  In this capacity he consulted to the District regarding services for students with disabilities.  After moving to Palmer in 1978, Dr. Brown served as the Mat-Su District's first consulting pediatrician.  His efforts resulted in the establishment of mandatory Kindergarten and extended day Kindergarten for children at risk.  He also worked closely with Mat-Su school nurses to coordinate care for children who otherwise had limited access to medical services.  Dr. Brown provided free physicals for students who participated in Special Olympics.  Dr. Brown was an avid runner and completed over 70 marathons.
