Mary C. Pirrung founded the graduate reading program in the Seattle University College of Education. While at Seattle University, Professor Pirrung was also a faculty member in the undergraduate teacher education program and mentored many preservice and experienced teachers. Her influence on literacy education has been perpetuated by the annual awarding of the Mary C. Pirrung Scholarship.
The Mary C. Pirrung Scholarship was established in the will of Professor Pirrung after her death in 1985 to assist professional educators who pursue the master’s degree in the field of reading. Alumni and friends of Mary Pirrung also contribute to this scholarship fund. The scholarship of approximately $1000 is awarded annually to a superior graduate student in the Literacy for Special Needs master’s degree program who manifests the commitment to excellent literacy education exhibited by Professor Pirrung for over 30 years.
