Kolasa-Zastrow Family Scholarship for Adult EducationAdult Education and Training alumna Ann Zastrow ('13) and her husband Jim believe passionately in the power of education to improve and enrich lives, inspired by the example set by their parents, all of whom were first generation college students and attended graduate school in mid-life. Norma Kolasa (b. 1934) earned a Master's degree in education at age 41 while working full-time and raising four children, three of whom were teenagers at the time. Frank Kolasa (b. 1932) attended law school full-time at night while working full-time as an insurance executive and raising those same four children, completing his JD at age 49. Sylvia Zastrow Schmitt (b. 1924) completed her PhD at age 50, having been widowed with two children, one in high school and one in college. These examples, coupled with Ann's own positive experience at Colorado State as a returning graduate student (MEd in 2013) inspired she and Jim to honor their parents by establishing this scholarship
