A new scholarship honoring the memory of IU dental graduate Dr. Charles Flannagan was
presented to d
ental student Amanda Bradley by Dr. Flannagan’s grandson, Dr. Jason Flannagan.

The annual IU School of Dentistry Scholarship Luncheon brought the dental, dental hygiene, and dental assisting students receiving scholarships this academic year together with many of the generous donors who make these funds possible each year and the family members whose loved ones are memorialized by the awards.

The scholarship recipients’ parents, spouses, and significant others were also invited to attend the luncheon, hosted by Dean John Williams on Nov. 13 at IUPUI’s Tower ballroom.

Many of this year’s 33 scholarships and awards bear the names of IUSD alumni and former students and faculty or their loved ones, including the inaugural Charlie Flannagan Family Scholarship, which honors the memory of alumnus Charles Emil Flannagan, DDS Class of 1950, Tell City, Ind.

Dr. Flannagan started out his career as an elementary school teacher in Indiana’s Perry County, and he flew bomber missions in World War II, achieving the rank of major in the U.S. Air Force. He practiced dentistry for more than 40 years, and died in April 2006.

Dr. Flannagan was survived by his wife, Dolores Flannagan, who died in 2007. Three of the Flannagans’ six children hold IUSD degrees: Michael Flannagan (DDS’73), Mark Flannagan (DDS’89), and Colleen Flannagan Jacobsen (ASDH’75).

The new award is sponsored by Dr. Flannagan’s extended family, which includes several additional IUSD graduates. Dr. Jason Flannagan, Carmel, Ind., a 2004 dental graduate of IU and Charlie’s grandson, presented the first award as the donor representative.

The Flannagans have designated the award for third- and fourth-year dental students who demonstrate outstanding clinical competency, are committed to high ethical standards in dentistry, and possess a strong desire to learn. Recipients must be from one of four Indiana counties: Perry, Crawford, Dubois, or Spencer.

The first recipient is Amanda Bradley, a third-year dental student from Jasper, which is in Dubois County.
