The Margaret Creigan Roberts Scholarship
Born in Glasgow Scotland, Margaret Creigan Roberts was trained as a nurse in the United Kingdom in the early 1960s. In the mid 1960’s, she pursued an opportunity to take a nursing job in Boston which brought her to the United States. By the end of the decade, she was married, started a family and had given up her nursing job. Divorced in the mid 1970’s, Margaret was a single parent living in a foreign country with few options. She decided to return to school in the 1980’s to pursue an education which would allow her to choose a different career. Margaret felt strongly that by bettering herself through education she could not only provide a better life for her family but could serve as a role model that it’s never too late to take control of your life. She went on to earn a B.A. in Legal Services in 1989 from the College of Public and Community Service, and later a Masters in Education.
