This scholarship was created to honor the donors' parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. H. Heinlein.  The Heinleins were very dedicated to Christian principles.  Mr. Heinlein worked as a farmer and was also a lay Methodist minister.  His mother, Elizabeth Heinlein of Ada, Missouri, made quilts and sold them for $5 each (!) to raise money for missionaries.  The Heinleins loved music.  Their four surviving children played both pianos and organs in their homes.
