Special Notes Susie Warden and Linda Haag started this grant fund in 2005 because they believe in lifelong learning. Both Susie and Linda completed their bachelor's degrees at UW-Eau Claire while working as full-time members of the university's Classified Staff. After completing their degrees, both women wanted to make certain other classified staff members had similar opportunities, so they created the Classified Staff Grant Fund.
Thank You The recipient should send a thank-you letter addressed to Susie Warden and Linda Haag in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
