Background: This Scholarship was created by Ted Butler in memory of his wife Pat Butler. Pat Butler was a wife, a mom, and a grandmom. She was a librarian before she started those fulltime careers. She was a person, who survived bad odds in life and fought her way through them until a final one took her. Pat survived being a 2.5 lb preemie, a teenager who had intestinal holes that kept her hospitalized most of one school year. As an adult, she had two ectopic pregnancies, two bouts with Pancreatitus and finally fought a battle with rapid progression Parkinsons Disease.
She was a fighter, and it seems appropriate that a scholarship with her name on it should help other determined people make the world a better place.
