A reason to give: Grace Keir

June 25, 2020 |


“I taught 18 wonderful years in the Family Consumer Science (FCS) Department (formerly Home Economics) at Minnesota State University, Mankato. The students were dedicated to learning in their respective majors and I enjoyed getting to know them through advising, clubs and on field trips. During my time, I also learned from the experiences I had serving on University committees and from the leadership role when I was department chair.

As a lifelong learner, I remember the many years I studied for my advanced degrees and know that it required not only time, but also the financial means to get it done. For this reason, I want to assist FCS students through my financial contributions for scholarships. I especially want to help future FCS educators so that they will have the expertise to teach the diversity of students they will find in and out of the classroom.

I continue to stay connected with the FCS Department and am proud of the high-quality faculty who are educating students who will be the future in our challenging world.” 

Grace Keir, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus
