Math-Science Division announces new scholarship

The Math-Science Division at Hesston College has a history of providing students a strong academic background preparing them for continued study and completion of professional degrees. Thirteen of our distinguished alumni made presentations at this fall’s homecoming event, sharing about the work they have been called to do and how Hesston College assisted their journey.

Homecoming Weekend 2010 also provided an opportunity to announce the new Math-Science Scholarship Endowment Fund. The faculty in the division had been talking about establishing a scholarship for quite some time and recently received the seed money from Lorna Harder’s family. Their gracious gift will help recognize prospective and returning students who have a passion and dedication for a major in science or math.

Many past and current faculty members who have taught classes in the areas of biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics have contributed to student success. This scholarship fund also honors the contributions these faculty members have made to the students’ learning and experiences.

We are very excited about establishing this scholarship fund and are hopeful that this will provide many future students the opportunities to pursue their interests in fields of science and math.
