Waalkes Family Scholarship

Calvin has a special place in the hearts of Dutch and Olive Waalkes. Dutch was a 1935 graduate and although Olive was not an alum, both of them appreciated the tremendous education their son Tom received at Calvin. After graduation, Dutch went on to law school, and became a very successful attorney and judge in the Grand Rapids area. He and Olive always looked forward to hearing from those Calvin students who went on to study law.
