Ron and Lorna From
The Lorna From Spirit of Education Scholarship was established at Northwest Missouri State University to honor Lorna From who has dedicated most of her adult life to education.
From began her education at Northwest in 1959 before taking an 11-year break to manage her home and care for her three children with her husband, Ron. She graduated from Northwest in 1973 with a degree in elementary education. Following graduation, she taught first- and second-grade reading at Eugene Field Elementary School in Maryville for three years before becoming a first-grade teacher, the capacity in which she served until her retirement in 2003. During this time, From also earned her master's in reading from Northwest in 1982.
The Lorna From Spirit of Education Scholarship was established through the Northwest Foundation by From's son and daughter -in-law, Jeff and Karen Gould From, both 1987 Northwest graduates.
