“I considered two other schools, but DWU felt like home. I’m so grateful for my scholarships. With that support I don’t have to worry about working all the time to pay the bills, and it allows me time to get involved on campus. I can’t think of a better investment that will give long-term returns than someone’s education.”

Ralph Roth Merit Scholarship for Business
Annual scholarship established by Marc ’90 and Lisa Pekas ’90 Rentschler

“With Ralph’s sense of humor and ‘I care about you’ attitude, he has taught and encouraged students to believe in themselves and their abilities. Ralph is not only an educator; he is a friend, mentor, giver and an inspiration. I will never forget the man who took me under his wing and changed my life forever. It is only right to honor him in this way.”
