Carl Rauch has experienced Shepherd from both sides of the classroom--as a student and later as a professor. With some undergraduate work at UC Berkeley and after a time spent serving his country in the armed forces, Carl accepted the invitation of a friend to visit Shepherd's campus. The welcome he received from faculty and students still lights up his face with a smile.
He graduated from Shepherd more than 50 years ago and returned in 1969 to teach and inspire students in all areas of mathematics. After retiring in 1990, he set up a scholarship endowment for math and math education students. During the Create the Future campaign, he made the decision to fund four more endowments for student scholarships to science and science education, fine arts, nursing, and education.
His five Rauch endowments will provide significant scholarship tuition awards to 20 students each year into perpetuity. Shepherd President Suzanne Shipley stated, "When you consider the image of 20 deserving students lined up each year and marching forward throughout generations, the impact of Professor Rauch's gifts is staggering."
Carl modestly observed, "I know that students receive a great educational experience in all areas here at Shepherd, and I want to contribute toward providing that special experience to future deserving students."
