Background and Motivation
We are both WSU Graduates: Samuel (B.S. 1956; MS 1965) History- Social Science, Secondary Education and LaVonne (B.S. 1970) in Elementary Education. Our Experience at WSU was very positive and we enjoyed teaching for many years. We want to give back to the community and establish a scholarship for students dedicating their future to teaching and educating the youth of tomorrow.
