The Starr Endowed Scholarship is given in honor of Eleanor J. and Frank W. Starr, who were both graduates of UNI.
Mrs. Starr, an English and Speech major, went on to work at UNI for 27 years where she was positively involved in the lives of the students in her residence halls. During her teaching career in Iowa, her love of theatre never waivered. She directed school plays and enjoyed attending productions wherever she lived. She was fondly known for her zest of life, an insatiable curiosity, and a love for people. Her husband, Frank, was a science education graduate and spent 28 years in the Waterloo School District.
