The Elkhart Branch of the American Association of University Women wishes to thank the Elkhart High School class of 1955 for its generous support of the Alice S. Fox Memorial Scholarship. Administered by the AAUW and awarded annually for the past seven years, the grant has helped young women of academic promise, graduates of Memorial and Central, to prepare for a variety of professions in the sciences and humanities. At the time of its 50th reunion, the class gave $1,000 to the Fox fund, and at its recent 57th gathering donated more than $2,500 to continue this award.
Alice Fox, a teacher devoted to her students and profession, was a faculty member at Elkhart High School for many years, As class co-sponsor, she guided the activities of young people with patience, kindness and wisdom. The graciousness of the class in continuing to contribute to this scholarship will allow AAUW to designate recipients for the next three years.
The class of 1955 deserves our gratitude for its encouragement of the youth of our community and its commitment to higher education. The gift is greatly appreciated.
