Eric Schaetzle Memorial Scholarship
The Southern New Jersey Chapter of West Virginia University’s Alumni Association has established an endowed scholarship in memory of WVU graduate, Eric Schaetzle. Eric passed away in a car accident shortly after graduating from WVU with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. The endowment will provide scholarships for undergraduate students from the area served by the Southern New Jersey Alumni Chapter including Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Mercer and Salem counties in New Jersey.
“We hope the recipients of this scholarship will be able to live the life that Eric was not able to by helping people,” said Eric’s family. “He was known for his great big hugs and more importantly, his time, time to care about another human being and what they were going through.”
