Boy meets girl at UW-Stout. They marry. They have four children, also graduates of UW-Stout. Two children marry other UW-Stout grads. The cycle continues with one grandchild at UW-Stout now.

This is the family legacy of Darrel “Fritz” BS ’58, MS ’61 and Cynthia BS ’58, MS ’68 Ebert.

When the topic came up what to do for their parents’ 50th wedding anniversary, the answer was clear to the Ebert children—collectively send a financial gift in their parents’ honor to their (all of their) alma mater.

“They were thrilled with the donation in their names,” Rebecca Ebert Koon ’80 said. The gift will fund scholarships, which fits perfectly within the Ebert legacy. Fritz and Cindy Ebert were both teachers before retiring and are great supporters of students who further their educations—especially at UW-Stout, the institution that brought them together.
