MRS. SCHAEFER'S SCHOLARSHIP
Gloria Schaefer, teacher and motivational speaker, lived her life demonstrating love of the Lord, of family, of friends and appreciation for new acquaintances. She was the action behind her key phrases "you are important," or "when we meet, smile and share a positive word" and "all glory goes to God."
