Pauline & Sanford Saunders Scholarship

The Pauline and Sanford Saunders Scholarship was established in 1990 by Alice Saunders as a way to remember her parents, Pauline and Sanford. The couple had a love of education and wanted to help those in their community. Sanford grew up in Creighton, Nebraska, and taught for a year in Knox County after his high school graduation. Education then took Sanford in a different direction and he entered the field of civil engineering where he was involved in the construction of many bridges built across the interstate highway in Nebraska. Pauline grew up in Lincoln and was active in the arts and worked for an art studio prior to her marriage to Sanford.
