A great teacher leaves a lasting impact on her students. Marilyn Miller Schmidlin was one of those teachers and impacted countless lives across the Valley.
Until her passing earlier this year, Marilyn’s spent most of her 90 years as a dedicated educator, a steadfast volunteer and establishing a scholarship with her husband, Jim Schmidlin, for students in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University.
Since 2012, the Marilyn and James A. Schmidlin Endowed Scholarship for Engineering has supported more than 35 incoming first-year students studying computer science and engineering disciplines with yearly funding.
The Schmidlins’ generosity has helped these students dedicate themselves to education, scientific discovery and community service, just as Marilyn herself did throughout her life.
