 FLEET BANK ANNOUNCES $352,400 IN 1992 NAURISON SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
 SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Hundreds of youths, mostly from western Massachusetts, today were named by Fleet Bank as recipients of college scholarships created by a Russian immigrant who practiced medicine in the region most of his life.
 Fleet Bank announced that scholarships totaling $352,400 from the James Z. Naurison Scholarship Fund were awarded to 487 students for the 1992-1993 school year. Awards ranged from $400 to $2,000 per student, Fleet is trustee for the $3 million fund established in 1974.
 A cardiologist who died in 1972, Naurison asked in his will that the scholarships be given specifically to "worthy young men and women of western Mass., and the towns of Enfield and Suffield, Conn." because that was the area where he worked since graduating from Tufts Medical School in 1909.
 Naurison was born in 1888 in Kiev, Russia, and came to America in 1891. A resident of Longmeadow, he worked at many western Massachusetts hospitals -- including Mercy Hospital in Springfield and Mary Lane Hospital in Ware -- and was a fellow of the American College of Physicians, International Academy of Medicine and the American College of Chest Physicians.
 Fleet Bank of Massachusetts, with 140 banking offices and in excess of $7 billion in assets, is a subsidiary of Fleet Financial Group, a diversified financial services company listed on the New York stock exchange (NYSE: FLT), with approximately 1,300 offices nationwide. Fleet's lines of business include commercial and consumer banking, mortgage banking, consumer finance, asset based lending, investment management and student loan processing.
