Freeda Younger Memorial Annual Scholarship

The purpose of this scholarship is to support and encourage students at MSU Denver to pursue careers in teaching. This scholarship was established to honor the memory of Freeda L. Younger who passionately taught elementary school in Colorado for over a decade. Freeda and her son John thought that the teaching profession was an avenue to help young people become inspired about life, and she requested that he establish this scholarship. Some of the best years of Freeda’s life were spent teaching and enjoying time with her kids and husband Everett in the Lakewood, Colorado area.
