First they discover amazing grace, then they pass it on
One hundred years ago Saint Ben's began preparing students with the academic and spiritual foundation that would propel them to success in a rapidly changing world. The legacy of the Benedictine women who founded the college burns brightly in the hearts and minds of our students, illuminating a new generation. Your support makes this tradition possible.
Krumps establish $2 million scholarship
Anne Schmidt-Krump '82 and her husband, Paul Krump '82, believe a college education can take you wherever you want to go in life. This core value, which is ap roduct of their experiences at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University, is a primary reason they have established the Anne Schmidt-Krump and Paul Krump Endowed Scholarhsip at CSB.
The Krump's gift is a $2 million single premium life insurance policy, which will be designated to the scholarship funds named in their honor at Saint Ben's and Saint John's.
"Our gift is truly a stepping stone," Schmidt-Krump explained. As members of the CSB/SJU community, we must remember that education gives students more options in life. If we can help make a four-year degree available to a young student who values it, it is worth it. It is worth it to the individual, their family and the community at large — it is priceless. "
The Krumps live in Mendham, N.J. Their oldest daughter, Emily, graduated from Saint Ben's in 2006.
