The Sam McQuade Nantes Endowed Scholarship in Memory of Mme. Suzanne Hugues, was established by Sam W. McQuade, Nantes 1967-68. Mme. Suzanne Hugues, who Mr. McQuade remembers fondly as “La Directrice” of the Nantes Center, greeted him when he first arrived in Nantes and was his advisor during his academic year abroad. She passed away in December 1969.
Mr. McQuade is the retired owner of McQuade Distributing Co., Inc. in Bismarck, ND, a company begun by his father, and currently managed by his daughter, Shannon. He created this scholarship because he felt privileged to have studied abroad in Nantes, studying and learning the French language and culture.
