By the Family of Dr. George H. Bahder
Were proud to be here to accept this award.
Our father left Poland and came to the United States because he was not able to effectively work in his field under the communist regime. Like many immigrants he saw the U.S. as the land of opportunity. He arrived here in 1962,with his wife and two children, at the age of 37 years old, having only $300. He spent 20 years living the "American Dream" and fell ill at the height of his career.
When someone dies, people close to them feel the pain of separation and are reminded of their own mortality. In receiving this award we are reminded that although our father's body has died, he lives on in his work as well as in our hearts.
We would like to thank everybody who made this possible, especially Mr. Katz, Dr. Fryszczyn and ICC. Thank you from all of our family.
Gregory and Thomas Bahder
Postscript: The Bahder family has chosen Mississippi State University as the recipient of the $2,500 scholarship.
