The Gary Roebuck ’62 Memorial Scholarship

About This Scholarship

The Class of 1962 established the Gary Roebuck ’62 Memorial Scholarship in 2022, following their 60-year reunion. Gary embodied the spirit of Our Strong Band. He was fully devoted in his efforts to bring his classmates together, leading the creation of five major class reunions and countless mini-reunions around the country. He was tireless in updating his class database, making it his and his classmates’ mission to find and welcome everyone. In 1986, he assembled the Class of 1962’s first organizing committee, the LEC, and led monthly meetings from the 1980s through 2012, their 50-year reunion. A recurrence of his leukemia in 2016 ended the life of a warm and welcoming “short, stout whirling dervish” of a classmate with the “tenacity of a pit bull.”
