Becky Swisher Crowe Memorial Scholarship Fund

“Becky loved kids and teaching,” said her best friend Karen Bottorff. “Whenever she was around, it was a happier place.”

Becky Swisher Crowe taught at both Quincy Junior High School and Quincy Senior High School beginning in 1970. She was killed March 9, 1979 in an automobile accident on her way to work. To honor Becky’s life and passion for education, her colleagues immediately set up a scholarship in her name.

However, with the passage of time, the task of managing the fund became much too daunting.  When Bob Siebers, a retired high school counselor and one of Becky’s colleagues, came upon the Community Foundation’s annual report in the newspaper, he realized that moving the fund to the Community Foundation would be the perfect way to ensure that her legacy was long lasting.

The primary purpose of the Becky Swisher Crowe Memorial Scholarship Fund is to provide a scholarship at an accredited two-year or four-year institution for a Quincy High Schoolsenior intending to pursue a degree in education.
