As a child, Daniel P. Kubiak had difficulty with reading. One of his teachers worked with him after school each day, and taught him how to read fluently. His widow, Shirley Kubiak, established the endowment in his memory, to help Delta students achieve their dreams. Mr. Kubiak attended Bay City Junior College (Delta’s forerunner), and taught social studies at Swan Valley Junior High School, adult education (history) at Swan Valley High School, and night classes at Delta College. Mr. Kubiak passed away in 1999.
