Wichita student receives scholarship

Wichita, Kan. — Marie Kurz, a business major at the Baker University School of Professional and Graduate Studies Wichita campus, has been awarded the Marc C. Roudebush Memorial Scholarship for 2011-12.Baker-0964

The endowed scholarship benefits adult learners who possess a work ethic like Marc Roudebush, who was posthumously awarded a Bachelor of Science in Management degree in 2007 from Baker after dying in a workplace accident two weeks before graduation.

Kurz, of Wichita, was presented the scholarship before a recent Wichita Wingnuts baseball game. Debbie Roudebush threw out the first pitch to celebrate the endowed scholarship she created in honor of her late husband, Marc.


Baker University is committed to assuring student learning, and developing confident, competent and responsible contributors to society.
