Everett G. and Emma B. Roettger Distinguished Undergraduate Scholarship and Research Award Endowment
This endowment is a gift in memory of Everett G. Roettger and in recognition of Emma B. Roettger by the Roettger family to honor their commitment and support their children's and grandchildren's pursuit of higher education. Everett and Emma Roettger strongly believed in higher education promoting general character, self-knowledge, leadership abilities, social responsibility, and well-being essential for participation in church, community, and society. The Roettger family seeks to honor outstanding students with its unwavering support, guidance, and help to recognize and promote these values in Tennessee Tech’s Honors Program.
The Honors Program played an instrumental role in the development and education of two of Everett and Emma's grandchildren, in addition to other individuals over the last 25 years. This award seeks to recognize and encourage the pursuit of independent scholarship and research among Honors students for the betterment of themselves and the communities in which they serve. The pursuits of excellence, knowledge, and understanding, gained through the often laborious and difficult task of self-education that rigorous independent scholarship and research require, remain intrinsic rewards to individuals, communities, and society-at-large. This award seeks to recognize the outstanding pursuit of such activities among the community of Honors Scholars.
