This scholarship was established in 2008 to prepare students for various careers, especially those in the insurance industry. Dr. Schmitt was passionate about helping students develop a strong sense of ethics in their personal and professional lives. As the business world becomes more complex, competitive and sophisticated, it was important to Dr. Schmitt that the university train students in ethical business practices, honesty, integrity and that those students be reminded of the importance of customer service and keeping their word.
