In Memory of Michael

Michael Meads was the WAA: Boston Chapter Scholarship recipient for 2018–19. He was a bright, compassionate young man who was thrilled to begin his college career at UW–Madison. In his short time on campus, Michael’s leadership and infectious spirit made a lasting impression on all who knew him. He swam with the water polo team, made many meaningful friendships as a pledge brother of Phi Gamma Delta, and proudly jumped around at Camp Randall Stadium. He planned to join the Naval ROTC program and study neurobiology, with dreams of becoming a Navy SEAL and a neurosurgeon. Tragically, Michael passed away on February 14, 2019, after a three-month illness.

The WAA: Boston Chapter will give its 2020–21 scholarship in Michael’s memory. We invite our friends and supporters to give a gift in his honor as well.
