Mary and Bill Seeger
The Mary A. and Wilhelm W. Seeger Global Programs Scholarship was established by Drs. Mary and Wilhelm (Bill) Seeger to enhance the learning experience of students striving to advance their foreign language skills through participation in short-term study abroad programs. 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.
