The North Central Missouri College Foundation is pleased to announce that $5,000 has been designated toward scholarship awards that will be given in memory of Willis W. Alexander. Mr. Alexander was born in Trenton and earned degrees from the University of Missouri and the University of Pennsylvania. He retired as an executive vice president of the American Bankers Association and passed away in 1985.
Dr. John F. Rose and Kris F. Rose of Fresno, California made the designation in order to have five $1,000 awards given to business students over the next five years in honor of Mr. Alexander. Alexander had been one of Dr. Rose’s instructors at Trenton Junior College, now known as North Central Missouri College. Dr. Rose has fond memories of Mr. Alexander, who was chairman of the Trenton Trust Company in Trenton while teaching part-time at TJC.
“Scholarships are a great way to remember and honor those individuals who’ve made a positive impact on your life. These new scholarship awards will benefit deserving students and will help them achieve their higher education goals,” commented Teresa J. Cross, Director of the NCMC Foundation.
