Anne Louise Roach Legacy Scholarship
The Anne Louise Roach Legacy Scholarship was created by Jennifer and Bryan Roach to recognize the first traditional mother-daughter legacy and exceptional achievments of Anne Roach as she graduated from Purdue University in May 2019. Anne is a BS Chemical Engineer, having completed a five term co-op with Mead Johnson and Reckitt Benckiser and a summer internship at Sazerac's Glenmore Distillery. In addition, Anne graduated with two minors: Spanish and Global Engineering, with three study abroad experiences in Peru, Switzerland, and Spain. Anne was a member of the Alpha Chapter as Director of Alumnae Affairs, Advisory Board, and Philanthropy Chair. Her campus involvement stretched beyond the sorority to include Professional Practice Ambassador, Cultural Companion to Purdue's Study Abroad office, Passport (member) to assist international students, and Officer in Omega Chi Epsilon (Chemical Engineering Honor Society). Anne was also involved in her community beyond the campus, teaching English as a second language to area fourth grade students as part of Ayude y Aprende Service Learning Project.
The Anne Louse Roach Legacy Scholarship recognizes the maturity of the sorority, the broad reaching impact of women in engineering, and the generational impact made by all members of Phi Sigma Rho.
