C.S. and Marion F. McIntyre Foundation

Gwendolyn M. Jacob was a dedicated and admired Monroe County teacher who helped educate children for 44 years, primarily at Boyd Elementary School and Lincoln Elementary School, before retiring in 1969.

Although “teaching was her life,” Ms. Jacob also was an avid photographer and gardener, and for many years, she owned and operated the Family Dairy Farm in Petersburg.

Born in Blissfield, Michigan, in 1904, Ms. Jacob graduated from Adrian College with a Bachelor’s degree and earned her Master’s degree in education from the University of Michigan.

The C.S. and Marion F. McIntyre Foundation endowed this scholarship in the name of Marion McIntyre’s beloved sister to honor her lifelong contribution to education in Monroe County.
