Merchants Insurance Group Establishes Marge Kafka Scholarship at Medaille

Marge Kafka

Merchants Insurance Group has established a $25,000 endowed scholarship at Medaille to honor Marge Kafka '90, a longtime member of the College’s Board of Trustees, as she retires from the company. Kafka has worked for Merchants for the last five decades. In addition to the company's donation, Merchants Insurance President Robert Zak made a personal contribution to the scholarship.

“Marge is a tireless advocate for the College,’” says Medaille Vice President for College Relations John P. Crawford. “We sincerely thank Marge for her service to Medaille, Robert Zak for his efforts in establishing the scholarship, and everyone at the company for their generosity. Gifts like this provide access and support to deserving students, and they happen because our faculty and staff inspire such confidence in our donors.”

The Marge Kafka/Merchants Insurance Scholarship will be given to an undergraduate psychology student pursuing a degree in mental health counseling at Medaille.
