Stephenson, Judy Berns Stephenson and Marcey Berns Aronson Endowment
Herb and Clara Berns established The Judy Berns Stephenson and Marcey Berns Aronson Endowment in 2000 in honor of their daughters, Judy Berns Stephenson and Marcey Berns Aronson, who are teachers. The funds are to be used for the unrestricted support of the College of Education at the discretion of the dean. Through professional contacts with The University of Akron, the Berns family developed multiple relationships with University students and administrators. After 30 years of involvement with the University, Herb and Clara decided to make their gift a perpetual tribute to their belief in the importance of education. It is the donors’ preference that funds be used for students with language, ability, or behavioral challenges.
