Fund Est. 2008Thankful for their combined 60+ years as educators in Adams County, Craig and Sue Anderson have created a scholarship to encourage students to enter the field of education.
Craig started his teaching career as a teacher at Northwest Elementary, then moved to Bellmont Junior High School, and on to become the school’s principal in 1982 where he was the principal and athletic director there for nine years. He completed a 32- year career as an educator and 24-year career in the United States Army Reserve, retiring as a major.
Sue has been an ‘all-Adams County’ educator teaching at different points in time at all three schools during her 30 years of service. She taught at South Adams (Geneva & Berne Elementary) and while at Adams Central she was a substitute teacher and library media specialist. She went to North Adams Schools as the library media specialist, gifted and talented coordinator and technology coordinator at Monmouth Elementary where she retired.
Craig and Sue are the parents of three sons: Eric, Brian, and Ian. Though they have retired, they are living part time in Decatur, IN and New Bern, NC. Though they left the working-world of education, they did not dismiss their effort to encourage and educate. They have established a fund in the Adams County Community Foundation to insure a student going into education will be recognized each year with a Craig and Sue Anderson Scholarship award.
