Bob Key Memorial Education Scholarship

Annual scholarship established by Mary Key in memory of her husband. Bob Key (1942-1995) was a husband and father whose chosen vocation was farming. Throughout his life, he pursued the perfection of his physical and managerial skills. He often took continuing education courses and taught seminars at Purdue University. He believed that success was achieved by a person’s own ability to accomplish a task as efficiently as possible. The Bob Key Memorial Education Scholarship is an appropriate continuation of his enthusiasm for lifelong learning.
