Henry and Harriett (Sensenich) Roberts
This scholarship was established anonymously in 1986 by Henry Roberts ('39) and Harriett (Sensenich) Roberts ('43), who met as students at Northeast Missouri State Teachers College. The name of the scholarship was changed from Anonymously Endowed Scholarship when Henry Roberts passed away in 2009. Henry Roberts was one of three brothers. All three served in World War II. Willard Wayne was lost in a plane crash over the Pacific, Ray served as a Naval officer in the Pacific, and Henry served as a tank commander in Europe. Ray was the only brother left unscathed by the war. Henry, who was injured four times, was mistakenly pronounced dead the first time.
Each of the three brothers attended Northeast Missouri State Teachers College with the help of scholarships. Henry worked in a private residence for room, board and laundry and also tutored and did odd jobs to work his way through college. Henry's wife, Harriett, taught in elementary schools during the winter and attended school during the short term and summer term. She passed away in 1996. Before WWII, Henry taught high school science and mathematics, and following the war, he stayed in the Army until after the Korean War, then worked briefly for the railroad before teaching science and mathematics at Wentworth Military Academy for one year and then in 1952 returned to school to receive a masters degree in chemistry. He accepted a job as a chemist with Owens-Corning Fiberglass in Newark, OH, and in 1959, was promoted and transferred to their plant in Anderson, SC. He retired in 1978 and continued to live in South Carolina until his death in 2009.
