Cornelius and Lettie Plantinga Family
To honor their father and mother, the four sons of Case and Lettie Plantinga—Alvin, Leon, Terry, and Neal—have joined with other family members, with friends, and with former students of their parents to establish this scholarship. Case taught psychology at Calvin College from 1950 to 1973, and Lettie taught various grades in the Grand Rapids Christian and public schools, as well as serving the Education Department at Calvin as supervisor of student teachers. Case and Lettie believed in the power and beauty of Christian higher education and, particularly, of Christian higher education at Calvin College. They and all of their sons and most of their grandchildren graduated from Calvin.
This scholarship has been created to assist psychology majors who demonstrate a desire and ability to think about psychology from a Christian point of view.
