Kristen Schildmier

About the Donor

Columbus residents Kenneth and Phyllis DeLap established a $40,000 endowment in honor of their granddaughter, Kristen Schildmier. Kristen is an IUPUC graduate who completed her degree in 2006. The DeLaps were inspired to make their gift after learning about the financial needs of a single working mother who became close friends with their granddaughter when both were IUPUC students.
