Marion W. Hatt Scholarship
Academic Motivation, Community Involvement and Character
Marion Hatt arrived at Proctor in 1950 with her husband, Roy, who served as Proctor’s chaplain. Mrs. Hatt became one of Proctor’s first remedial reading specialists in the predecessor to Proctor’s Learning Skills program. Her work with students like Sumner Rulon-Miller III, ‘57 transformed lives and led Proctor to further develop formal academic support programs for students with dyslexia. Hatt’s impact was so great on students like Sumner, that he established the Marion Hatt Scholarship in her memory. A Marion Hatt Scholar has been selected each year by a Committee, composed of past scholarship recipients, since the endowment’s inception in 1985.
