Andy W. Schrier Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was established in memory of Andrew Schrier, class of 1999, by a group of Andy’s friends and classmates at Calvin. They remember Andy’s enthusiasm for life, commitment to neighborhood development, eagerness to form strong friendships, and sharp sense of humor. They hope that students with a similar concern for social justice and community renewal will be benefited by this scholarship.
