New scholarship honors Lina Vergara

Scholarship honors memory of compassionate student with dreams of teaching third graders.

During her two years at UW Oshkosh, Lina Vergara was active in residence hall government and service organizations. An elementary education student with majors in bilingual education and English as a Second Language, she had aspirations of teaching third grade following her graduation.

A tragic rafting accident in July 2012 took the life of the 20-year-old. Her family has established the Lina Vergara Memorial Scholarship to assist future teachers who share Lina's warm and caring nature.

To make a contribution to Lina's scholarship fund, visit the Foundation's online giving page and type "Lina Vergara Memorial Scholarship' in the notes box.
