Hamline Life Trustee Celebrates 100th Birthday


Hamline Life Trustee Orem O. Robbins recently celebrated his 100th birthday. Orem established the Robbins Scouting Scholarship in honor of his commitment to the Scouts of America. The Eagle Scout Award and the Girl Scout Gold Award are the highest honor for men and women in the Scouts of America. They symbolize outstanding accomplishments in areas of leadership, community service and personal development, which also reflect the values of a Hamline education. The Robbins Scouting Scholarship, established in 2003, has played a significant role assisting more than 350 scouts to receive an education at Hamline which otherwise might not have been possible.
