Andrew F. and Mary H. Anderson Scholarship Endowment
Mary H. Anderson, who founded the Delta College Flute Choir in 1974, established this endowment in memory of her husband, Andrew F. Anderson. The Anderson Family has long connections to Delta College – Mr. Anderson’s father, Oscar, was a member of the “Committee of 300” (considered to be the College’s founders) and a Charter Member of the Delta College Board of Trustees, and his sister, Annette Diebel, served on the Board of Trustees from 1975 until 1993.
The Anderson’s also had a strong connections to the automotive industry – Oscar Anderson started Northern Automotive – later renamed Northern Supply Company – an automotive parts company in Bay County and, upon his semi-retirement in 1962, his son became president and served until he passed away in 2000.
Contributions from the Andersons also made possible the “Currents” sculpture on Delta College’s main campus, and created the Delta Sculpture Walk, in honor of the College’s 50th anniversary in 2011.
