This scholarship was established to benefit students with financial need who are employed at least part-time while majoring in any course of study at LSSU. John Peacock was a former judge and Detroit attorney who moved his family to Sault Ste. Marie in 1973 to open his own law firm, from which he practiced for 20 years. Peacock received an LSSU bachelor’s degree in history in 1987 upon retiring from his law practice and 40 years after World War II interrupted his undergraduate studies. Peacock received one of LSSU’s highest honors, the Distinguished Citizen Award in 1995. In 1998, in honor of the John Peacock family’s dedication and commitment to the students of LSSU, the coffee house in the Walker Cisler Student and Conference Center was named Peacock Cove.
