Robert J. and Adele Dugan Proffer Math & Science Education Scholarship

The donor is using this opportunity to honor his late wife, to recognize her unfulfilled desire to complete her education degree as well as his years of service to the College of Education. Adele Dugan Proffer had a successful career as an outside insurance claims representative and was the first woman promoted to this position without a degree. Having recognized the value and benefits of higher education, she encouraged others to obtain their degrees and supported them in their educational endeavors.
