Helping students with the numbers
Saturday, September 26, 2009
The daughters of a longtime St. Cloud State faculty member and his wife found an appropriate way to honor the memory of their deceased parents. Cynthia Simson ’80 and Melissa Froelich ’87, both of St. Cloud, have endowed the Allen and Betty Brink Mathematics Educators Scholarship for the benefit of math majors with a 3.25 or higher GPA on a 4.0 scale.
E meritus Professor Allen Brink taught mathematics at St. Cloud State for more than 30 years, from 1959-94. His daughters said he was passionate about teaching, athletic coaching and community service, enthusiasms that their mother supported throughout their years together.
