Penzkover Scholarship

March 11, 1953 - October 26, 2007

Ann Marie was the Dean of Student Services at Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College, from 1993 to 2007. She was a staff member of the College for 20 years and had been a valuable part of the team that engineered rapid growth in campus facilities, academic programs, and support services for students.

She held a Masters Degree in Educational Administration from UW-Superior and was a successful teacher, program planner, and administrator for over 25 years.

Ann Marie believed strongly in the tribal community college education and was proud to be a graduate of University of Wisconsin-Barron County Campus at Rice Lake. Her undergraduate degree in Secondary Education was from UW-River Falls.

She was a member of the Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians and represented the LCO Ojibwa College with a message of hope and high expectations for Native American students.

In honor of her memory, the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College has established a community scholarship for first-time, part-time students in Ann Marie's name. Students who are attending college for the first time, and are taking less than 6 credits, may be eligible for the Penzkover Scholarship. Interested students should talk to the Financial Aid Office for details.
