Richard and Barbara Taylor of Redmond, Wash., established the Richard B. Taylor II Family Scholarships in the spring of 2004 to assist students in the Hogan Program. This scholarship fund was created in honor of Elizabeth L. Taylor and in memory of R.B. Taylor, Charles W. and Louise Taylor, and Peter E. and Margaret Fluor. The scholarships are based on academic merit and financial need and are renewable based on the students’ performance.
Richard and Barbara Taylor also established the Megan (Taylor) Schindler and Sarah Taylor Scholarships in the name of their two daughters who are Gonzaga University alumnae. These scholarships are based on merit and financial need and are for female business students. Megan (Taylor) Schindler, a 2002 alumna, majored in business administration with concentrations in finance and women’s studies. She is director of membership and special events at the Zino Society in Seattle. Sarah Taylor, a 2004 Gonzaga alumna, also majored in business administration with concentrations in marketing, human resource management, and entrepreneurial leadership. She was a member of the first graduating class of the Hogan Entrepreneurial Leadership Program and was part of the winning team in the 2004 Business Plan Competition.
