Patrick Stanley was a father and lifelong learner who was passionate about education and passed away too soon. The Stanley family has been fighting student debt since October 2021, honoring Patrick by supporting non-traditional students. Patrick was a non-traditional student who finished his Bachelor’s degree at age 28 and later went back to school and earned his Master’s degree at the age of 52. At the time of his death at age 55, Patrick was applying for Ph.D. programs. This scholarship fund will remember his desire for knowledge by giving opportunities to students who have taken a less traditional path in their schooling.
