Sustaining Excellence: Scholarship Support

Scholarship support is important to the ability of most students to attend North Central, but never more so than in this time of economic hardship for many families. During 2008-2009, Ian and Brent Tyson established a scholarship to honor their mother, Associate Professor of Education Lora Tyson, who died September 1, 2008. Tanya Kuzmenko ’10 is the first recipient of the new Dr. Lora L. Tyson Education Scholarship.
