Lary W. Troutner Scholarship in History

Purpose:  The Lary W. Troutner Scholarship was established by his wife Joanne J. Troutner.  Lary Troutner received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Purdue University in 1976 and was employed by the University from 1982 to 2010 as a business officer.  As a couple, the Troutners were faithful and enthusiastic members of the Purdue family who were grateful for the lifetime of opportunities and experiences afforded them through their Purdue education and affiliations.  As an expression of their commitment to help future generations of students achieve a Purdue University degree, Joanne Troutner established an endowment in honor of Lary Troutner to provide scholarships for undergraduate History majors.
