Ada Mae Janicke Marshall Endowed Presidential Scholarship

Mar 12, 2015 | EPS/EPF

Ada Mae and her husband, George, married in 1942 and moved to Austin at the end of World War II. George attended UT Austin, and both he and Ada Mae had a great love for the university. George graduated in 1948 with a B.A. in Geology.

The Marshalls were married for 48 years, until George’s death in 1991. In 1992, Ada Mae established the George W. Marshall, Jr. Memorial Endowed Presidential Scholarship to assist geoscience students, and now Ken and Denise are delighted to honor Ada Mae’s legacy as well with this scholarship in her name.
