Endowed scholarship honors Myers

The College of Liberal Arts is honoring long-time Assistant Dean Barbara Myers by establishing an endowed scholarship in her name.  Myers, who has been at the university since 1973, is retiring Jan. 31.

Funds have been raised from family members, friends and colleagues to establish the Barbara M. Myers Endowed Scholarship in Liberal Arts.  These funds will create a permanent endowment in the college.  

Funds distributed from the endowment will support undergraduate students having a grade point average of 3.25 or higher.  Financial need may be a consideration; however, the primary criterion for the scholarship is a student’s commitment to study abroad in one of the college’s summer study abroad programs. Liberal Arts Honors and Plan II students will be among those considered as potential recipients.

In the past 32 years, Myers has worked for five deans of the college, including James McKie, Bob King, Standish Meacham, Sheldon Ekland-Olson and Richard Lariviere.  As assistant dean, she works with the college’s scholarship programs such as the Dedman Scholars and international programs such as Tracking Cultures and Normandy Scholars.  

She initiated the Dean’s Distinguished Graduates program and was responsible for turning the college’s newsletter, Logos, into one of the best alumni publications in the country.

Last year, Myers was the recipient of the college’s highest honor, the Pro Bene Meritis Award, given for outstanding contribution and commitment to the liberal arts.

For more information about the endowment, contact Becky Prince at (512) 475-9763.
