Susan Kaetz Memorial Scholarship
It is with great respect and love that NWSAM announces the formation of the Susan Kaetz Memorial Scholarship fund. Susan Kaetz was a graduate of NWSAM, an gifted acupuncurist and an advocate for the school. She played an enormous role in bringing NWSAM to Vashon Island and to spreading the word about the benefits of massage and acupressure to our animal friends.
Susan Kaetz passed away in 2015 from lung cancer. She left an indelible mark on her community and especially the animals she encountered. Her laughter and her smile will remain in our memories forever.
In honor of her life and her devotion to animals, NWSAM has established a scholarship fund to assist others in learning animal acupressure so that they may help to carry on her legacy of compassion.
To apply for a scholarship, please contact our office directly and request an application. Applications are reviewed and scholarships awarded throughout the calendar year. There will be one full-ride scholarship awarded annually and several smaller tuition grants depending on availability and need.
