Frank P. Husvar Scholarship

Frank was a determined man.  During a 21-year Army career, he saw action in WWII and Korea and rose to the rank of 1st Sergeant.  When he retired at a comparatively young age, he was far from ready for a life of leisure. He became a math and science teacher.  When throat cancer forced Frank to have a laryngectomy, he refused to let the problem get him down.  He learned esophageal speech and returned to his middle school students.  Later, he went to the Mayo Clinic for training to become a certified speech teacher, resolving to help others with similar challenges.

Frank was very interested in children and education,” Martha notes. “The scholarship fund is a way to carry on his name and to honor him.”
