Hoppock Memorial Scholarship

Ruth Cora Farr grew up in Maplewood, New Jersey where she attended Columbia High School. She graduated from Colby Junior College in 1936 and then worked for the town physician. She married David Willard Hoppock and raised two children in New Jersey, while also caring for a young elementary schooler whose parents died.

A lifelong supporter of education, Ruth Hoppock encouraged her daughter, Susan Hoppock Avery, to attend medical school at a time when women were under-represented in the profession. Susan Avery created this scholarship in recognition of her mother’s encouragement and support as she followed her dream of becoming a doctor.
