JEAN & MYRA BOATMAN SCHOLARSHIP AWARD

The Jean & Myra Boatman Scholarship Award will be awarded annually to a senior student. The student must be in the upper 50% of his or her graduating class and display creativity in problem solving abilities. 

HISTORY OF JEAN & MYRA BOATMAN

This endowment is established to honor the memory of Jean and Myra Boatman. Jean Boatman graduated from Rose Polytechnic in 1947. His education at Rose was interrupted by WWII. After two years in the Pacific with the Navy, he returned to the chemical engineering program. With his came his wife Myra, and the first of their two children. Jean went on to a successful, 34-year career at 3M as a chemical engineer and plant manager. 3M considered him an extraordinary and creative problem solver. Jean always felt his education at Rose-Hulman was second to none. 

This year's Jean & Myra Boatman Scholarship recipient is Austin C. Matthews. Congratulations, Austin!
