Robert “Bob” G. Schick, 90, of Geneva. Loving husband of 65 years of Joyce nee Dreier. Devoted father of John, Sandra (Peter) Bohr, Mark (Patti), Karen, and Kurt (Kathy). Beloved grandfather of nine and devoted great-grandfather of five. Over the course of a 33-year teaching and coaching career at Geneva High School, Bob taught math and PE and held head coaching positions in basketball, baseball, and football, and served as Athletic Director. He later became Assistant Principal, teacher, and coach at Valley Lutheran High School in St. Charles. Bob’s influence on those he taught, coached, and befriended was immense and immeasurable. He had a strong belief in the potential of kids, the goodness of people, and the power of disciplined work. Despite Bob’s busy work schedule, he was an ever-present father, devoting himself along with wife Joyce to his five children and constantly involved in their upbringing and interests while helping shape their Christian values. Bob extended this same devotion and attention to his nine grandchildren, whom he adored.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

[Renewing Scholarship Recipient] Graduate of Hinkley-Big Rock High School

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!
