Scholarship Purpose: Amy O'Reilly Fisher was a devoted mother, wife, and educator. She received degrees in deaf education (Illinois State University, 1993) and educational administration (Governors State University, 2002), and her career with special needs and deaf children spanned 10 years. She always went the extra mile to ensure her students received whatever was needed to succeed despite their challenges.

The endowment recognizes Amy O'Reilly Fisher's extraordinary contributions to her students and the community, and allows her legacy to inspire and empower others for many years to come. Assets of this endowment are invested in the Illinois State University Endowment Investment Pool.
