DR. LARRY T. BALSAMO HISTORY SCHOLARSHIP ESTABLISHED

Jul 11, 2008

In honor of our recently retired Department Chair, Professor Emeritus Larry T. Balsamo, a scholarship has been established in his name for History Teacher Education students. This five-year renewable scholarship will help to support the most outstanding students preparing for careers in history education in the secondary schools. Considering Dr. Balsamo's many years educating students at Western and working with public school teachers to enrich their understanding and teaching of American history, this scholarship seems a fitting tribute to him.

Contributions in honor of Dr. Balsamo's many years of service may be made to the Balsamo History Scholarship on-line at the WIU Foundation web site (see related link in blue box above) or may be sent directly to the History Department at 438 Morgan Hall, Western Illinois University, One University Circle, Macomb, IL 61455-1390. Checks should be made out to the "WIU Foundation" with "Balsamo History Scholarship" noted on them.
