The Accola family has created this scholarship to honor a daughter and sister who loved learning. Students and faculty both knew Roxanne for her incredible kindness and willingness to listen and lead. Roxanne majored in physics with a minor in math and founded the Society for Women in the Physical Sciences at UW-Eau Claire. Roxie created WSTEM to help students at UW-Eau Claire build a community centered on a passion for gender equality in the STEM disciplines, especially those fields where women are greatly underrepresented such as physics and other physical sciences.
|Thank You||Recipients of this scholarship are requested to write a thank you note addressed to 'The Accola Family' and send it in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation Office.|
