The Office of Development and Alumni Relations would like to share the most recent estate gift of $164,650 made possible by Edna Vinson. Edna received her Bachelors in Math Education from the University of Evansville (then known as Evansville College) in 1946. She was a teacher in the Evansville area for 38 years, teaching math at Bosse, North, and Harrison High Schools. Later in her career she was a math supervisor for grades K-12. She will be remembered as a wonderful and kind person; extremely thoughtful and intelligent; generous, cheerful, a great conversationalist, and the consummate teacher. Edna passed away at the age of 92 on March 13, 2014.
With the love she had for the University of Evansville and as a tribute to the education she received here, Edna made provisions in her estate plans to establish the Edna E. Vinson Scholarship. This endowed scholarship will be awarded to a sophomore, junior, or senior with first preference to an education major and second preference to a student majoring in mathematics. With this gift, Edna chose to leave her legacy at the University to help future generations of teachers.
