Their lives spanned an era “progressing” from spinning and knitting homemade calicos to purchasing off-the-rack, ready-made clothing. Both spent their lives as dedicated farmers. The family farm was started in 1902. The stewardship of the farm’s lands is the source of this scholarship. It is the donor’s hope that it provides encouragement to those who receive the scholarship to be aware of mankind’s place in the ecosystem — from the most intimate of individual sociological commitments to the biological-ecological effects of the whole. It is hoped that the scholarship recipient, in turn, becomes a “steward of land” wherever and however he/she may fulfill his/her days. Upon Mildred’s passing in May 2010, her request to add her sister’s name to this fund was honored; and in April 2011, Mildred’s name was added to the fund at the request of Marjorie.​​​
