Bart & Emma Maxwell Utterback Scholarship in Elementary Education
When sisters Roberta Utterback '39 and Lois Utterback Beal '37 decided to establish scholarships that would perpetuate their parents' names as well as their own, pleasant memories of their alma mater led them to establish charitable gift annuities with the Northwest Foundation.
Lois and Roberta's parents had always encouraged education for their six children. The sisters, whose mother was a teacher, taught in rural Missouri schools during the winter and attended Northwest during the summer months to complete their degrees in education. Lois, who retired in 1977, lived in Greenville, Mich., where she last served as principal of the Baldwin Heights Elementary School. Roberta was an associate professor of education for 35 years at Ohio State University in Columbus before retiring in 1979.
