Lewis & Elda Israel

Lewis graduated from Ridgeway High School in 1927 and went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from NWMS in 1931.  He served as the editor of the Harrison County Republican Clipper from 1961-1975.  Elda graduated from Bethany High School in 1937 and then earned her Elementary Education degree from Northwest in 1969 and a Master’s degree in 1973. She taught for a total of 20 years in both Gilman City and Bethany schools. 
The Israel’s daughter, Susan Israel-Nelson of Spring, TX says, "Northwest Missouri State University was very important to our parents." Nelson, who earned her English degree from Northwest in 1989, went on to say, “This scholarship should assist deserving students and serve to memorialize the impact of our parents in Harrison County."
