Susie Warden and Linda Haag started this grant fund in 2005 because they believe in lifelong learning. Both Susie and Linda completed their bachelor’s degrees at UW-Eau Claire while working as full-time members of the university’s Classified Staff. After completing their degrees, both women wanted to make certain other classified staff members had similar opportunities, so they created the Classified (now known as University) Staff Grant Fund.  The USC is grateful to them, and to the UWEC Foundation, for making this opportunity possible.
