Math/Computer Science Scholarships

Baxter Family Scholarship 
George T. and Frankie Rogers Baxter graduated from Northwestern in 1925 and 1915 respectively. Both believed in the power of education, both formal and at home. While Frankie graduated with a degree in education, she took art classes at Northwestern and enjoyed the self-expression painting afforded. George graduated with a degree in chemistry; his love of the subject led to teaching his children, Hurshel and Pauline, who would also go on to major in chemistry. In even years, the Hurshel F. and George T. Baxter Scholarship will be awarded to a full-time Northwestern student majoring in Science or Math; while in odd years, the Frankie Rogers Baxter Scholarship will be awarded to a Fine Arts student.

John N. Cameron and Sheldon and Joy Cameron Sherman Scholarship Fund
Funds in honor of John N. Cameron were presented in 1961 when Mr. Cameron retired from the Northwestern faculty. His former students, family and friends established this fund.
