With the influence of new laws, many barriers have been broken down to help accommodate the needs of disabled students. Now, more than ever, students have better access to educational resources that will enable them to enjoy the full benefits of a collegiate experience. SVSU wants to ensure that students in need of accommodations are able to achieve their dreams through higher education via assistance from scholarships, grants and funds made available to those in need.
Mrs. Lois Barnett was born July 19, 1933 in Ludington, Michigan and grew up on the LaPointe family farm in Carr, Michigan. She graduated from Mercy School of Practical Nursing in 1953. While married to her husband Lt. Cmdr. Robert Barnett she lived and traveled many places in the United States. However, her love and heart always belonged to Michigan.
She left a Legacy of service and caring for others. Her children and grandchildren remember her open door, where she always had a bed and some hot food for wayward teenagers. Mrs. Barnett involved herself in community service and often volunteered to help raise money for the March of Dimes, MDA, Cancer Society, St. Jude’s Hospital and the PHI scholarship fund.
Mrs. Barnett believed strongly in the value of education and loved to travel, especially to warm beaches with family. Her favorite past time was reading to her grandchildren. She and her husband sacrificed much to send their five children to Catholic schools. She always thought everyone should get an education and was thrilled whenever adult family members announced that they were going back to school.
This endowment was set up to honor her memory and legacy by helping students with disabilities purchase necessary assistive technology.
