Helene Schulz, a retired Polk State College Professor of Humanities and English, earned the respect and love of students and peers during her 16 years at Polk State, and she and her family continue to do so with their altruistic generosity. On February 22nd, they were recognized for their history of generous donations to Polk State College totaling $39,000 for emergency scholarships and the much-anticipated annual Back on Campus event, which Helene played a leadership role in creating. Since 1997 they have generously donated $25,000 to Polk State College programs and $14,000 in general donations. They have endowed a scholarship to help Polk State College students in perpetuity achieve their dream of a higher education.
