Exciting Times at the Rogers house

Post by Wayne »

I hope you will let me tell you about the most exciting week in my life. It started yesterday when I met the young lady who is the first recipient of The Prof R E Rogers scholarship at Navarro College in Corsicana Tx. My Grand Pa Robert Edmond Rogers was a teacher here in Navarro County 1912-1917. I found my aunts birth certificate and they listed her dad as being Prof R E Rogers. So I decided to fund a scholarship in his name at the college. The winner has to work 8 hours a week per semester at the Pearce Museum. Then this morning I get the news that a Historical Marker application I had prepared with the help of 6 ladies was approved. I had worked on it for 3 years. Needless to say I'm way up on cloud nine. Her is a picture of two excited individuals. :D

Thank you fellows. Yes it is very rewarding and I know ever time I see her at the Pearce I'll feel that burst of joy again. Another thing I hope comes from this. Is you look at me and think if that old man who is nothing special, just a common man and if he can do that so can I. You can get 100% return on your money if you invest in the education of a young person.
