Ray Zimmerman Memorial Scholarship 

In 2015, Paul and Gloria Zimmerman established and sponsor a scholarship at Green Bay West High School to honor Paul’s father, Ray, who was a teacher at West High School from 1935 – 1971. During that time he taught Social Problems and Industrial Arts and was a Jayvee Football Coach and an Assistant Track Coach.

Mr. Zimmerman was dedicated to ensuring the academic success of each of his students. To that end he set high standards for both his students and himself.

Paul and Gloria graduated from West in 1953 and 1954 and are pleased that they can “pay it forward” to the school that played a positive role in their lives and influenced them to become teachers.
