2017   Rachel Reeves

Nancy Anderson Schmitz Endowed Scholarship for Teacher Education

Nancy Anderson Schmitz Endowed Scholarship for Teacher Education

Fern Anderson made great sacrifices to obtain her teaching certificate  during the Great Depression and her teaching career was spent in a one-room  schoolhouse. The Anderson family recognize the value of education to individuals  and to our society as a whole. Their strong work ethic and devotion to  family ensured that both their daughters and granddaughter received college  degrees. This scholarship pays tribute to Edwin and Fern Anderson for their  commitment to and belief in higher education - specifically in teacher education.

As a supporter of higher education and leadership, Nancy Anderson Schmitz  would like to showcase her respect for her parents’ dedication to teacher  education by establishing an endowed scholarship in her mother’s field of  teacher education.
