Marilyn '78 and Henry (Don) Berns

Marilyn '78 and Henry (Don) Berns

Marilyn '78 and Henry (Don) Berns are thankful for the life they have led together, and credit the opportunity of a college education and their strong faith for impacting their quality of life. Originally from a small farming community in Nebraska, Don eventually earned his PhD in Mechanical Engineering, while Marilyn returned to college after raising their children and graduated with a teaching degree from St. Ambrose University. They established a named scholarship for an education major as a personal legacy, and funded it through a charitable IRA rollover gift. Marilyn commented, "It gives us great joy to meet our scholarship recipient and know that we are helping them achieve the dream of a college education."
