Fresno State alum to fund pre-veterinary scholarship

A Fresno State alumnus will fund an annual $1,000 scholarship for pre-veterinary students in honor of his pet bulldog.

The Mr. Murphy the Bulldog Scholarship was created in memory of alum David Vartanian’s adopted English bulldog who died six days before Victor E. Bulldog II, the school’s official mascot.

Vartanian graduated from Fresno State’s Craig School of Business in 2008.
