Sharon and James Broadhead

BroadheadWe believe privileged people have an obligation to help others and to do so in an intelligent and effective manner. One of the most effective ways of helping, and at the same time building a stronger America, is by supporting education.

I received scholarships that helped me through Purdue. We felt it appropriate to give something back to the institution that I love and that provided assistance to me.


Sharon Broadhead (CFS’65) with her husband James created the Sharon Rulon Broadhead Scholarship in Consumer and Family Sciences. The scholarship was created on the occasion of their 40th wedding anniversary.
