Miriam “Mim” John, retired Vice-President Sandia California, has funded an additional 4-year undergraduate scholarship in memory of former Sandia employee Walter Bauer. This Walter Bauer Scholarship recipient will be selected from among the 2017 Pedrozzi Scholarship applicants.

“I was thrilled to learn that some of my former Sandia colleagues had established scholarships through the Pedrozzi Foundation in Walter Bauer’s honor. Walter, like Mario Pedrozzi, was an inspirational example of what an immigrant with drive and opportunity can accomplish. By providing these “scholar-athlete” scholarships to local youth, we are helping catalyze a bright future for them – and in the long run, for our community,” shares Mim.

“The Foundation is grateful for Mim’s generous donation to fund this scholarship. The generosity of Livermore community members continues to increase the Foundation’s impact and allows more students to know that their community is invested in their future,” says Carolyn Siegfried, Pedrozzi Foundation Executive Director.
