About Nancy Bandeen
This endowed scholarship honors Nancy Bandeen, who graduated from MSU’s College of Education in 1971. Nancy began her career in Lansing, Michigan, while her husband Roger completed his Engineering Degree, graduating from MSU in 1972. Nancy subsequently taught elementary school in Enid, Oklahoma while Roger was in pilot training in the Air Force. Nancy also taught elementary school in Massachusetts, Korea, Missouri, and then Battle Creek, Michigan after Roger completed his military educational obligations. Nancy and Roger received various scholarships and grants to enable them to complete their educational dreams that would have been otherwise unattainable. It is their fondest hope that this scholarship may afford others that same opportunity.
