Foreign Language Alumni
This scholarship was established in 1986 by Foreign Language alumni in tribute to Drs. Mary and Wilhelm (Bill) Seeger (pictured to the right). Bill Seeger served 40 years, starting as an early member of the faculty and later serving as chair of the Modern Languages and Literature Department. Mary was also among the early faculty when she joined Grand Valley in 1965 as a professor of German. She retired as Dean of Advising Resources and Special Programs. As Dean, Mary continued teaching one course each semester until retirement, and launched the faculty and staff annual giving program where she continued to serve in a leadership role after retiring.
This scholarship is intended to fund foreign language scholarships at GVSU.
