The Bier Family Scholarship was established in 2017 to celebrate the 91st birthday of Marian Bier and her special relationship with three generations of Elder graduates. Marian was the wife of Walt Bier (Elder Class of 1941), the mother of Greg Bier (Elder Class of 1964), and the grandmother of Jim Bier, Tom Bier and Mike Bier (Elder Classes of 1990, 1993 and 1995). Marian is also the the grandmother of Chrissy (Bier) Harmon who married Guy Harmon (Elder Class of 1998). And Marian fully expects a fourth generation of Elder graduates to be on the way. She and all the Elder graduates mentioned above fully appreciate the value of an Elder education, and hope that this scholarship will help others to be able to realize the value of an Elder education.
