In conjunction with The University of Findlay’s 125th Endowed Funds Drive, The University of Findlay announces five new endowed funds:
Dr. Micheal F. and Denise K. (Reno) Anders Vocal Music/Musical Theatre Scholarship
This scholarship was established at The University of Findlay by Carol L. Reno to honor her daughter, Denise K. (Reno) Anders and her son-in-law, Dr. Michael F. Anders. Said scholarship will assist students who have been active in the UF vocal music program with enrolled membership in the choir and who have participated onstage or backstage in UF musical theatre productions.
Julie Christiansen Mazza Museum Endowment
Julie Christiansen established the Julie Christiansen Mazza Museum Endowment Fund at The University of Findlay. Julie volunteers at the Mazza Museum as a Docent. This fund will be used for the operations of the Mazza Museum.
EJ and Mildred Rader Scholarship
Ellis James “Jim” Rader established the EJ and Mildred Rader Scholarship Endowment Fund at The University through a bequest. Mr. Rader retired in 1985 from Marathon Oil Company after 38 years of service. This scholarship will assist students in the College of Business and the College of Sciences.
Jane J. Tille ’57 Scholarship
This scholarship was established by the family of Jane Tille, a member of the Findlay College Class of 1957. It is awarded to students who are financially supporting biological children living at home. The recipient may be in any year of study with at least a 2.5 GPA. Tille came to Findlay in 1950 with her husband, Raymond J. Tille, M.D., who was entering a medical partnership with Henry Koehler, M.D. Tille was a dedicated community volunteer, housewife and mother of three young children at the time. She had completed two years of college prior to marrying Dr. Tille, and it was her goal to complete her degree at some point. Tille was familiar with the demands of balancing a college education while supporting a husband and three children. Therefore, it is fitting that this scholarship fund be established to support other adults who have children in their care while they complete their English education degrees.
Ward Family Scholarship
In conjunction with the 125th Endowed Funds Drive and the Give Voice to Your Values campaign, Dr. Chris (’96, M ’98) and Mr. Gregg (’03) Ward established this scholarship to assist in the education of marketing students. This scholarship is awarded annually to marketing students having a 2.75 or better GPA and who are active in at least one extracurricular activity or volunteer with a recognized community organization or church. The Wards both have strong ties to The University of Findlay. Mr. Ward is the third generation to receive an education from The University of Findlay; his father and grandmother also were graduates. Dr. Chris Ward received both a bachelor of science degree in business administration and an MBA from The University of Findlay. She started teaching full time in the College of Business in 2004.
