Later, when her hearing failed and she could not attend classes herself, she established a scholarship for students majoring in Spanish, holding junior or senior status with at least a 3.0 GPA. When Miss Achord passed away in 1989, she remembered The University of Findlay in her will so that an endowed scholarship could be established in her name.
