  • Strong leadership and service.

Mrs. Stout established the Susan Stout Memorial Scholarship Fund in 1963 in memory of her daughter who received a B.S degree in Physical Education in 1958. Originally, the award was made annually to a rising senior major in Physical Education (now Kinesiology--formerly Exercise and Sport Science) who demonstrated academic excellence, leadership and service. The fund, because of its dramatic growth over the years, and the generosity of Susan's classmates, alumni and friends now supports students from all departments in the School of Health and Human Performance, undergraduate and graduate.
