Education was very important to Dr. Anthony. He completed his bachelor’s degree at the State University of New York at Binghamton, and then graduated with honors from the University of Kansas School of Medicine. He completed a general surgery residency at the University of Washington, a surgical oncology fellowship at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York, and a master’s of science degree in epidemiology from the Harvard University School of Public Health.

At the time of his death, Dr. Anthony had just been appointed chief of surgery at the Boise, Idaho VA Medical Center. He had previously served as vice chairman and professor or surgery in the division of surgical oncology at the University of Texas Southwestern School of Medicine and chief of surgical service at the Veterans’ Administration North Texas Health Care System. Dr. Anthony was a well-respected teacher and mentor and had a passion for teaching. He trained a generation of surgeons, many of whom became close friends.

Education is also very important to Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter, whose careers were spent educating students. With degrees from Graceland University and Central Missouri State, the Carpenters taught in the Garden City, Warsaw and Windsor school districts before taking positions in Trenton. Mr. Carpenter was the principal at Adams Middle School for 25 years and Mrs. Carpenter was an NCMC English department faculty member and retired as the college’s dean of student services.

Understanding the need for financial assistance for prospective teachers, they have established the Thomas Anthony, M.D. Memorial Scholarship for NCMC students who are pursuing degrees in the field of education. This new endowed scholarship will be awarded annually to a second semester freshman or a sophomore student pursuing a degree in the field of education in the amount of $350 per semester.

Through the Thomas Anthony, M.D. Scholarship, the Carpenters will continue to help students. “Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter are going to be able to positively impact the lives of NCMC students for years to come, and the recipients of this award will be able to continue the legacy of educating students of tomorrow,” commented Teresa J. Cross, NCMC director of development.

“Scholarships are a great way to remember and honor those individuals who’ve made a positive impact on your life, and we have been very pleased with the community’s response to our on-going Gifts in Action Scholarship Campaign,” she continued. Please contact Ms. Cross at 660-359-3948 x 1403 or by e-mail at tcross@mail.ncmissouri.edu to find out more about the Thomas Anthony, M.D. Scholarship or the Scholarship Campaign.
