George and Helena Webb Teachers of Tomorrow Scholarship

About the Sponsor

The George and Helena Webb Teachers of Tomorrow Scholarship was established as a result of a bequest to the university by George and Helena Webb to establish this scholarship. Mrs. Webb was 94 at the time of her death and wanted her estate to benefit education in the memory of her and her husband. We are grateful for the faith these two individuals have placed in the value of education.
