Walters Family Honorary Scholarship sponsored by Mary Anne
Moore (Gamma 42, IEB President 2001-2004). This scholarship
was established to recognize her family's love and support in
achieving her educational goals and in general, the importance of
a family's support in realizing any goal. Families provide
invaluable support to students while seeking engineering or
technical science degrees which are demanding disciplines.
Although Mary Anne earned her way through school with
scholarships, her family assisted her by providing room and board
for two years, home cooked meals, a referral for a part-time job that
she held for five years, babysitting jobs to earn extra money, and
lots of love and support. A family's assistance may be financial,
emotional, or a combination of both, but the strength from family is
important to achieving any goal.
