About Bertrand and Norma Weening
This endowment is a gift from Bertrand and Norma Weening. Both graduated from Michigan State University in the 1950’s; Bert took his teaching degree in Industrial Arts and Norma completed her Bachelor’s degree in Art. Both are devoted and committed alumni of Michigan State University. Having some sense of the rigors and requirements necessary to become an excellent teacher, and having learned of the Teachers for a New Era Initiative – a program that contributes to the support of young teachers – Norma and Bert were enthused to create an endowment to contribute directly to the quality of education in our state and beyond. More specifically, the Weenings wanted to help support intern teachers far from their own home, who are without the support of an extended family in their teaching locale. The Weenings strongly encourage the recipient of this scholarship to use this award as an incentive to strive to achieve their very best potential as a teacher and shaper of the minds and hearts of our next generation of citizens and neighbors.
