Andy and Doris De Vries Family
A scholarship has been funded by the children of Andy (Jeane) De Vries and Bud (Doris) De Vries to provide financial assistance to students whose parents did not go to college. The De Vries grandparents immigrated from the Netherlands and struggled to make ends meet as well as to send their two sons to Christian elementary and secondary schools. The De Vries brothers and their wives made many sacrifices so that a Christian education would also be available to their own children. All eight of the De Vries brothers’ children attended Christian elementary and secondary schools and graduated from college, seven from Calvin College. The De Vries children would like to recognize the sacrifices of their parents and grandparents by establishing a scholarship for students whose parents did not have the opportunity to attend college.
