GSEP Thanks Pepperdine University Alumna Evelyn B. Blake for Establishing Endowed Scholarship
The Evelyn B. Blake Endowed Scholarship was established in honor of the late Evelyn Blake (’68), a Pepperdine alumna, and generous benefactor of Christian education and GSEP. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a doctoral student in the field of psychology who demonstrates financial need.
Blake received her bachelor’s degree from George Pepperdine College, and a master’s degree in psychology and English from the University of Southern California. Afterward, she started her career as a special education teacher at Gardena High School, where she taught for 25 years, until she retired in 1991 at age 77. Blake’s family hopes that her love for Christian education will live on through the scholarship and continue to inspire Pepperdine students for generations to come.
