Charlie and Wilma DeRidder
Charlie and Wilma DeRidder and their five children are Calvin alumni. They are thankful for the scholarship help received during the seventeen consecutive years their five out-of-state children attended Calvin College. Recognizing the Christian teachers at all levels who helped them develop their individual abilities to prepare them for lives committed to service in Christ’s Kingdom, Charlie and Wilma establish this scholarship for those preparing for elementary, secondary, or special education. This award will encourage out-of-state junior or senior level students who demonstrate Christ-like character in everyday life, a passion for learning, and who are loving role models to those around them.
