Three DePauw University students — senior Brent Hume, junior John Colton, and sophomore Jake Rust — are being rewarded for their scholarship and involvement in the campus and community. The three were announced as recipients of Albert L. Lund ’48 Scholarships for the 2013-14 academic year at Phi Delta Theta’s annual awards banquet, which took place at The Inn at DePauw tonight.
The awards are for $6,000 each. The three are members of the Indiana Zeta chapter of the fraternity.
Albert Lund, who was a Phi Delt at DePauw, established the scholarship in 1999 to reward members of his fraternity for their dedication to academics and to recognize their involvement in campus and community activities. The latest awards bring to 43 the number of Lund Scholarships that have been awarded over the past 14 years, totaling more than $200,000. Mr. Lund passed away in 2003.
Larry Lund ’77 and his sister, Lindsey Lund Peterik ’74, the son and daughter of Albert Lund, presented the awards. Others on hand at the
event included DePauw financial aid officers, administrators and faculty members. Members of the Lund Selection Committee on hand included Glenn Davis ’79, Ed Gower ’77, Scott Shewalter ’77 and Steve Jones ’69. (photo, l-r: Gower, Shewalter, Rust, Lund, Hume, Peterik and Davis)
“My father’s enrollment at DePauw was made possible by a Rector Scholarship, and he always viewed the idea of creating opportunity for young students as important and essential,” recalls Larry Lund. “DePauw was very special to my dad, as was Indiana Zeta, where so many of his fondest college experiences occurred. His gift is making this chapter an even stronger institution and helping DePauw students achieve their goal, which serves the University well. It’s an annual privilege and thrill to honor these young scholars.”
