Former Campus School teacher Ruth Sayer and her late husband, Frank, an Oswego businessman, wanted to do something to give back to the institution that enriched their lives and that of their community.
“Frank and I both felt all along that we are fortunate to have the college as an important part of Oswego,” Ruth said. That appreciation, along with their satisfaction with President Deborah F. Stanley’s leadership, led Ruth to endow the Frank and Ruth Sayer Education Scholarship.
Selected graduate students in agricultural and mathematics education now will have the opportunity to combine Peace Corps service and a master’s degree.
The new partnership is part of the Peace Corps Master’s International program. It fits well with Oswego’s many global awareness initiatives, President Deborah F. Stanley said.
Barbara Garii, associate dean of the School of Education, said the program, approved to begin this spring, should have 10 students in a year or so, and build to about 25.
