Dr. Lambert Scholarship Opportunity

Dr. Mitch Lambert taught Chemistry at Theodore Roosevelt High School for 27 years and was deeply loved by his students and colleagues for his sense of humor, his passion for learning, and his expertise in all most everything. He was particularly dedicated to helping students who sought his advice. Dr. Lambert was a major reason that Roosevelt is such a high quality school. A $2000.00 memorial scholarship will be awarded to two high school seniors who are interested in pursuing a career in science and have demonstrated a strong desire to learn and continue their education with the goal of earning a college degree.
