This scholarship endowment is established by Robert and Sally Wiles to honor the memory of Sally’s brother, Richard W. “Dick” White ‘60. White graduated from Rudyard High School in 1954, enlisted in the Marines, served and was honorably discharged. He then entered Soo Tech, branch of Michigan Technological University. Dick was a much focused student of Geology and truly became a legend at Soo Tech and Michigan Technological University. After receiving his Doctorate from the University of California – Berkley, he traveled the World with the U.S. Geological Survey with his last stop in Denver at USGS headquarters. Premature death attributed to Leukemia at age 40 abruptly halted Dick’s list of geological discoveries in his prime. Successful candidates must major in one of the LSSU physical sciences programs with a minimum 3.0 GPA.
