An Example From Syracuse University
Allen Berger ’57, G’66 has always been a strong proponent of the written word, and of sharing the joys of reading with others. For several years, he taught high school English and reading, then he was offered the opportunity to earn a doctorate in education from Syracuse University.
To honor his parents, Henry and Goldie Berger, who built a successful tailor shop and dry cleaning business in his hometown, Berger recently established the Dr. Allen Berger Endowed Scholarship. Funded through a planned gift, the scholarship will provide financial assistance to graduate students enrolled in the School of Education, with preference given to literacy education students.
“Syracuse University changed my life,” he says. “When I was considering endowing a scholarship, I thought about the different places where I worked, and decided I would give to Syracuse. I was very fortunate to have a graduate assistant job when I was there, and that was wonderful. I want someone else to be able to have the same experience.”
