  • Scholarship Description
  • To honor his legacy of academic and philanthropic excellence, Point Foundation has created the Walter M. Decker Scholarship to support one or more outstanding students annually.

    Dr. Decker, an accomplished radiologist, was a fine example of an individual who lived a simple life, but wanted others to benefit from his success. He was compelled and inspired by the example of Point Scholars who, in the face of discrimination, have had the courage to honestly present themselves to the world. Until late in his life, Dr. Decker did not feel he had the freedom to do the same. In supporting Point Foundation, he strongly believed that he could help young people overcome the prejudice and discrimination that he feared at the same age in his life. In his experience, education was transformative, and he believed that his support of Point Foundation would help improve the lives of others by providing access to education and other opportunities.
