Three members of the Indiana Zeta Chapter at DePauw University have been rewarded for their scholarship, campus and community involvement. Jake Rust ’15, John Colton ‘14 and Nick Thompson ‘16 are recipients of Albert L. Lund ’48 Scholarships for the 2014-15 academic year. The awards are for $6,000 each.
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. Forty (46) Lund Scholarships totaling more than $220,000 have now been awarded. Mr. Lund passed away in 2003.
Larry Lund ’77 and his sister, Lindsey Lund Peterik (Delta Gamma)’74 (the son and daughter of Albert Lund) presented the awards at the chapter’s annual awards banquet at The Inn at DePauw. Others on hand at the chapter’s event included DePauw financial aid officers, Student Life advisers and professors. The Lund Selection Committee attendees also included Ed Gower ’77, Scott Shewalter ’77 and Steve Jones ’69. DePauw’s VP of Academic Affairs Larry Stimpert presented a keynote address.
“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.”
