A reception was held in the lobby of Coon Memorial Hospital by the Dallam Hartley Counties  Healthcare Foundation Thursday evening to establish the John H. Cunningham, Sr., MD, Memorial Scholarship Fund. 

In addition to the start of this scholarship fund, a fountain and plaque were unveiled in honor of Cunningham’s 42 years of service in Dalhart. 

Cunningham served as a physician in Dalhart from 1953 until 1995. He delivered over 1,600 babies in Dalhart in that time. The first baby delivered by Cunningham in Dalhart was recognized at the reception as well.
