Wayne Robart, Christine Rydel, and Edward Cole

This scholarship was created by Mr. Wayne L. Robart, GVSU alumnus, and Professors Christine A. Rydel, and Edward A. Cole, in memory of Lt. William A. Zimmerman USMC, a graduate of Grand Valley State University who died in the service of his country at Beirut, Lebanon in October of 1983. The scholarship provides financial aid for Grand Valley students who serve in any branch of the U.S. armed forces, active or reserve, and for any who are honorably discharged veterans. Donors to the scholarship seek to express their gratitude for those who go in harm’s way for the defense of our liberties.
