Anne Szopa was instrumental in developing the Women’s and Gender Studies and Sociology programs at Indiana University East. In recognition of her contributions and to encourage others to expand opportunities for students to study in this field, Rob and Nancy Tolley have endowed $30,000 to establish the Anne Szopa Scholarship.
Vice Chancellor for External Affairs Jason Troutwine said, “As an IU East graduate, Paula Kay knows our campus and the important role we play in our region. She has been actively involved in our community for several years and brings a great deal of energy and professionalism to this position. I am confident she will do wonderful things for IU East.”
