of Financial Aid at Beaver College, Roemmele occasionally wrote personal checks to
students who were having difficulty purchasing books for their educational courses.
Today, she serves as Associate Director of Financial Aid at Gwynedd-Mercy College
and continues to provide annual support to help to address these needs at Arcadia.
The book fund was established in memory of friend, colleague and former Theater
faculty member, Judith Elder.
Ellen Jane Hover ’74 Memorial Scholarship
Julia Keller ’11 (fourth from left) is the first recipient of the Ellen Jane Hover ’74
Memorial Scholarship, which was established by fellow alumnae and friends in Hover’s
memory. The scholarship benefits a student who shows exceptional talent and passion for
music. Keller is an accomplished pianist and is presenting a spring recital performance
with other Arcadia music students. Friends of Hover’s and those passionate about music
are seeking to fully fund the annual award as an endowed scholarship in her name. Pictured
