The Andrea Michelle Sperka Scholarship is awarded each spring to a sociology major who exemplifies the outstanding qualities of Andrea Michelle Sperka, a bright and talented former sociology student. This fund was established by Carol and Michael Sperka in memory of their beloved daughter Andrea, who was a senior when she tragically lost her life in an automobile accident in Botswana after completing her studies abroad. 

Throughout her undergraduate years, Andrea carried a demanding academic schedule while working to help meet her educational expenses. In addition, Andrea often served as a volunteer, including work with homeless children in Madison and in South Africa. It is in Andrea’s spirit of helping others that Carol and Michael Sperka created this fitting tribute.
