Her Giving Nature Goes on Forever
Late Professor's Legacy Lives on Through Gift
Dorothy Schultz was well loved by students, colleagues and friends, and is described as a soft spoken, incredible teacher who was considerate and fair.
Dorothy joined the faculty of the original Jackson Junior College as instructor of chemistry in September 1947. Seven of her 32 years at the college were spent as head of the Department of Chemistry. During one of the longest and most outstanding careers in the history of the College, she inspired countless students to pursue successful careers in chemistry and related areas.
Dorothy’s compassionate nature led her to be a faithful benefactor of Jackson College during her 32-year career and beyond. In 1979, the Dorothy Schultz Chemistry Scholarship was created to honor her emeritus status. Dorothy continued to make gifts to the scholarship fund over her lifetime, but knew that by creating an estate gift, she could have an even greater impact on the lives of students.
By naming the Jackson College Foundation as a beneficiary of her trust, Dorothy has truly created an everlasting legacy. The scholarship, which is intended for chemistry students, honors her long-time tenure at Jackson College.
Despite Dorothy’s quiet and unassuming ways, she left a lasting influence on the students and colleagues with whom she worked.
Though Dorothy passed away in 2014, she will forever be remembered for her kindness and generosity.
