The scholarship fund was established in memory of Ada Shawkey who taught in the geography department at Framingham State College for many years.
On the occasion of its 50th reunion, the Class of 1957 made a substantial donation to this fund so that it can now benefit a geography major or an education major who is specializing in geography.
