THE STORY:

Update: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GENEROSITY! We are completely overwhelmed with the love and support we have gotten from you. 

On July 26, 2013, Neil's mother Christianna Alger died after a long battle with breast cancer. To honor the one year anniversary of her passing, we are asking our community to support the Dr. Chris Alger Scholarship at San Diego State University which provides scholarships to teaching credential candidates who represent underserved communities.

Chris, a tenured Professor of Education at SDSU, was passionate about the need for more well-trained minority teachers in our public schools as a key component of our schools' future success.

Chris was an absolute force to be reckoned with. Small, mighty, brilliant, blonde and legally blind, Chris embodied kindness, patience, generosity, love and optimism. She was a teacher through and through, whether it was teaching you how to make a good pie or how to be a great educator, she was a pro.

We miss her more than we could have possibly imagined.

Thank you for helping all of the Alger Family ensure her legacy 

All of our love, 

Neil & Becca
