The Peggy A. Wilczak Endowed Scholarship in Education

Back to Endowments

About Peggy A. Wilczak

Peggy A. Wilczak created this endowment in memory of her parents- Grace Bensinger Large and Cecil R. Large- who encouraged her to pursue a college education. Peggy's years at Michigan State University helped her grow and mature educationally and emotionally. After her father passed away during her junior year, her mother insisted she return promptly to take advantage of a small scholarship and to finish her degree. Peggy graduated from MSU in 1952 and subsequently received a master's degree from Oakland University. For nearly 30 years, Peggy taught school in several Michigan districts including Port Huron, Southfield, Utica, and Birmingham. Peggy retired from Birmingham as a reading consultant in 1988. Peggy's husband, Eugene, and their eldest daughter, Mary Ann, also graduated from Michigan State University. Eugene and Peggy retained close ties to the university through 30 years of giving. It is Peggy's hope that this scholarship will give those eligible for a college education a chance to grow educationally through this endowed fund.
