Past Foundation Board Chairman Anita Williams Peck bequeathed the funds to form this Endowed Scholarship in memory of her dear friend Betty Tucker, of Williams Lake, Rosendale, NY. Elizabeth graduated from SUNY Ulster in 1970 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998. Betty earned a Bachelor’s degree from PACE University, and a Masters and Doctorate of Education from Columbia University.

St. Mary’s College, SUNY-New Paltz and SUNY-Regents College and was an Assistant Professor of Nursing Education at Columbia University’s Teachers College.
