Sisler, Thelma Litsinger Alpha Gamma Delta Scholarship
Established in 1997, The Thelma Litsinger Sisler Alpha Gamma Delta Scholarship is intended to support undergraduate members of The University of Akron's chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, based on academic achievement and financial need. Harlin G. Sisler, class of 1930, has made his assistance available in memory of his wife, Thelma Litsinger Sisler, class of 1927. They were first introduced to each other on the steps of Buchtel Hall while both were within the Greek system: Mrs. Sisler with Alpha Gamma Delta and Mr. Sisler with Alpha Sigma Omicron (now Phi Sigma Kappa). Mrs. Sisler, a biology graduate, meticulous in every endeavor, loved nature, flower gardening and antique collecting, and was an active volunteer in many organizations while maintaining a focus on the support of her family. Recipients will be selected by the University Scholarship Committee on the basis of established criteria for scholarship and need. Annual award is to be used to meet the full expense of tuition, books, and fees for each recipient. The number of recipients each year will be determined by the amount available for award. Renewed support is possible, if the recipient continues to meet the established award criteria. As their means permit, recipients are encouraged to consider replenishing this scholarship to assure its continued availability.
