Burton and Marjorie Heinmiller Bauernfeind Memorial Scholarship
In 1934, a promising high school honor student by the name of Burton Bauernfeind received a letter from North Central College’s President Rall informing him that he received a scholarship. This scholarship was in the amount of $100 and would be given in $25 dollar increments over the next four years. By 1938 Burton and his college sweetheart (and future wife), Marjorie Heinmiller ’38 graduated from North Central College. Over the years, Burton enjoyed a successful career with Prudential Life Insurance that spanned almost 40 years, enabling him to provide a fulfilling life for his wife and their three children.
Seventy-four years after President Rall’s letter was written, the Bauernfeind’s son, John Bauernfeind ’67, created the Burton and Marjorie Heinmiller Bauernfeind Memorial Scholarship in memory of his parents. The purpose of this scholarship is to offer financial assistance for two scholarship recipients with a business related major (first preference given to a student looking to pursue a career in the life insurance field or financial services field) and speech/theatre majors.
