Dorothy Mowbray, Advisory Board Member and Media Specialist with the Sia Yorker Brain Awareness Scholarship Foundation. Media has been Dorothy’s passion ever since she turned her brother’s Erector Set and record player into a radio station that broadcast tunes across the family farm. 

 

Dorothy is a Walking Miracle! On December 10, 2021, the Mowbray family's world was turned upside down when. Dorothy awoke complaining of low energy, exhaustion even after sleeping all night, migraine headaches, and vomiting, (signs and symptoms of a brain aneurysm). Dorothy seized as she was getting back in bed, her husband Allan immediately called 911, and she was taken to Altamonte Advent Health, she was in a coma at this point.  An immediate CAT scan was done which revealed bleeding on her brain and was airlifted to the Advent Health South Hospital where an External Ventricular Drain, "EVD" was installed in her head to relieve the pressure from the brain bleeding. 

 

January 27th, 2022, Dorothy was transferred to a Skilled Nursing Rehab Facility where she received physical, speech, and occupational therapy until her discharge, on February 20, 2022. On the same day of her discharge, Dorothy attended her son Kelan's wedding in Tampa, Florida.  

March 5th, 2022 Dorothy and Allan Mowbray attended the Sia Yorker Medical Science Scholarship Banquet where she was honored as the 2022 Sia Yorker Prestigious Woman of the Year and presented a beautiful diamond cut glass plaque.

Our Future Health Care Physicians and Professionals

Ms. Asia Olude 2021 1st Place Scholarship Winner shared her experience as a virtual scholarship winner, and a freshman at the University of Central Florida. Asia told the recipients to never forget the deposits (the morals and values) that you received from home. Don’t allow others to stop you from being the beautiful individual that you were created by God to be. Don’t get caught up in having so much fun that you forget your purpose! Never be too proud to let your parents know the truth “You MISS HOME”!

2019 1st Place Scholarship Winner Kayla Nguyen, a 3rd-year student at the University of Florida, shared her heart with the 2022 recipients. Kayla charged them to do their best in school, combat their fears and always present yourself in a respectful manner, represent your family, and the Sia Yorker Brain Awareness Scholarship Foundation.
