The first scholarship available through the Marcia and Richard Engum Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund will provide a $1,000 scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year.

To qualify, the recipient must have an overall grade point average of 2.5 and maintain a 2.5 GPA each semester during the scholarship year and be 30 years of age or younger. The scholarship also gives preference to students who do not qualify for the Hathaway Scholarship.

“The Engums were just average hard-working individuals who invested so that they could leave something behind to help future students,” said Ann Dalton, associate director of development for the Casper College Foundation. “The Engums loved the city and people of Casper. They wanted to leave a gift that would improve the lives of young people in our community,” she said, adding, “We hope to have others donate or companies match donations to grow this endowment even more, as the goal of the endowment is to be able to give multiple annual scholarships in the future.”

Established in September of 2017 as the Marcia and Richard Engum Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund, investment monies earned by the fund are used to finance the scholarship in perpetuity.
