FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chick and Carolyne Wallace celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in a unique way – by gathering friends and family to raise money to establish the Chick and Carolyne Wallace Scholarship. The scholarship will support UA students who are spouses of active duty soldiers.
“The debt we owe to the many fine men and women in uniform and their dependents, for the sacrifices they have made and are making every day for our country and our way of life is beyond measure. We are working to grow this scholarship to contribute to the education of those serving or their dependents,” the couple said.
The scholarship is the latest way the Wallaces have shown their support of the university and the military community. For the past 30 years they have volunteered their time and opened their hearts and home to a multitude of good causes.
The couple also demonstrated their commitment through their long careers at the university. Chick retired as the UAF director of facilities services, while Carolyne retired after 29 years with UAF’s College of Natural Resources Management.
