A Clayton couple have been inspired to help the next generation of Bearcats to pursue their educational dreams.
Marion and Joan Miller Freeman who graduated from Northwest Missouri State in 1950 and 1949 respectively recently gave $50,000 to sponsor a self titled Adopt-A-Bearcat Scholarship. The couple says loyalty to their alma mater, life-long friendships, and a shared passion for teaching all played a part in their decision to bestow the gift. The scholarships will be given to eligible students to help offset educational expenses. Joan Freeman, a former member of Tri Sigma and Kappa Delta Pi is a music and physical education major from Burlington Junction. Marion Freeman is a Tarkio native who majored in Physical and industrial arts education. The Freeman's donation will be matched 100% by the university and distributed over a 10-year period, ultimately providing $100,000 in scholarships.
