This endowment was established by Catherine Gianakura Rogg to honor her mother, Georgia. At the time of her high school graduation, Georgia was planning to attend Michigan State University to become a mathematics teacher. As she was preparing to move to Lansing, her father became ill. She made the choice to care for her father and attend to the needs of her family. Throughout the years of raising her own family, she often served as a teacher’s aide in mathematics at area elementary schools in Sault Ste. Marie. This scholarship is to be granted annually to a student who is pursuing a degree in Education with a major in Mathematics.
