Les Gutter Memorial Scholarship

In 2013, the Les Gutter Memorial Scholarship was created in memory of Les Gutter, a dedicated
treasurer of FAMOHIO for more than twenty years. Les’s financial expertise, attention to detail, and
strong dedication to the Ohio bleeding disorders community helped ensure the continued success of
FAMOHIO, Inc. In addition to Les’s financial expertise, he was motivated by a strong spirit of
volunteerism. It is to that dedication and spirit of giving that the Les Gutter Memorial Scholarship was
created to promote and inspire young persons with bleeding disorders to pursue their career goals
through post-secondary education.
