These funds will be allocated to support various programs, including the Alumni Association, Lindbergh Lights the Way, Lindbergh Retired Educators, Foundation Innovation Grants, Lindbergh High School student scholarships, and more.

Thank you for being part of this memorable occasion!

  • Dr. Mary Louise Zieger Scholarship

    Dr. Mary Louise Zieger had a distinguished educational journey, earning her Bachelor of Science from Missouri Valley College in 1959, a Master of Science in Education from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville in 1965, and a Doctor of Philosophy from St. Louis University in 1969. Her career was marked by significant contributions to education and the community, including teaching fifth grade at Sappington Elementary from 1959 to 1967, serving as an administrative assistant at The Middle School from 1968 to 1970, and as an assistant principal at Sperreng Middle School from 1970 to 1974. She continued teaching fourth grade students at Long Elementary until her retirement in 1997 and was recognized as a Lindbergh Distinguished Educator.

    Dr. Zieger's teaching career spanned 38 years at Lindbergh Schools, and her greatest joy was witnessing her students grasp her teachings and develop a love for learning. In her post-retirement years, she remained dedicated to her community, serving as a deacon and Monitor of the Board of Deacons, teaching Adult Bible Study classes at Southminster Presbyterian Church, volunteering at the Affton Police Department, and being a neighborhood watch captain. She also volunteered at Nurses for Newborns for seven and a half years and served as a Wing Watcher at Meramec Bluffs.

    Her lifelong commitment to education and community service was exemplified by her parting gift—a scholarship fund within the Lindbergh Schools Foundation, ensuring her passion for teaching lives on in future generations. Dr. Mary Louise Zieger's life journey was a testament to her unwavering dedication and passion for making a positive impact on the lives of others.
