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.
The Margaret Creigan Roberts Scholarship was created to help single parents who wish to pursue education later in life. It was created by her loving children to honor her memory.
