The Bob Becker Endowed Scholarship was established by the SVSU Alumni Association to recognize Mr. Becker’s contributions to the university.
Bob Becker was athletic director at SVSU from 1980-1998. Under his leadership, the SVSU Athletic Department experienced solid growth and many athletic successes. Mr. Becker served the university in various roles for over 30 years. In consultation with Eugene Hamilton (government and community relations), Mr. Becker helped choose the cardinal as the SVSU mascot in 1970. Bob Becker passed away in 2008.
The scholarship endowment was created by proceeds from annual golf outings attended by SVSU staff, faculty, alumni, and friends each year. Area businesses provide sponsorships that also support the scholarship program.
