The Marlowe Sherwood Memorial Scholarship Endowment was established by Park University’s Alumni Council in recognition of Marlowe Sherwood’s 14 years of service to the University as the Alumni Director. The fund continues to grow through gifts from members of the Alumni Association and friends of Park University.  Scholarship awards are made annually from the earnings of the fund.

The Endowment:

The Endowment: As of June 4, 2019, the endowment balance was $69,590.64. Gifts from alumni; family and friends of Marlowe Sherwood; class gifts from the reunion classes of 1955, 1957 and 1958; proceeds from Alumni Association fundraisers such as the replacement diplomas and t-shirt sales; and activities during Homecoming, continue to make this fund grow. As the balance increases, the earnings from the fund also grows, allowing more awards to be given to our alumni students and their family members.
