Successful fundraiser supports scholarship

Wichita, Kan. — More than $10,000 was raised at the fourth annual Marc C. Roudebush Memorial Scholarship golf tournament on Aug. 26 at Hidden Lakes in Derby, Kan., a benefit for student scholarships at the Baker University School of Professional and Graduate Studies Wichita campus.Baker-0979

Sherwin-Williams hosted the event, which attracted more than 30 teams. Christopher Conner, chief executive officer of the paint company, and Sherwin-Williams representatives from California, Oregon, Ohio, Illinois attended the event. Michelle Case, executive director of enrollment at the Wichita campus, represented Baker.

The endowed scholarship benefits adult learners who possess a work ethic demonstrated by 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. Roudebush was a shift supervisor for Sherwin-Williams. Marie Kurz, a business major at the Wichita campus, was awarded the Marc C. Roudebush Memorial Scholarship for 2011-12.
