Spring 2019 SLP Award Winners

Brothers Klimiuk, Fronk, Keller and Grass

Dear Gamma-O Brothers,

It is with great pleasure that our Foundation announces the scholarship grants recently awarded based on the results of the Spring 2019 semester.  As previously noted, while we are not at our endowment fund goal, we feel it is important to provide meaningful scholarships to deserving recipients of the Chapter.  The Scholarship/Leadership program initially developed by undergraduates and alumni was used as the basis to determine the awards.

Under the conditions of the Scholarship/Leadership program, the requirement for the Chapter GPA as a whole was met for Spring 2019.  An important tenant of the program is the Chapter must succeed as well as the individual.  For Spring 2019 that tenant was met with the Chapter GPA exceeding the All Men’s Average on the Hill.  David G. Mackenzie ’61 previously provided a special contribution in 2019 to be paid out for current scholarships if the award requirements were met.  Many thanks to David for this contribution, which allows the awards to be increased over what the Foundation earnings can provide.

After the tabulations under the program, the Spring 2019 Foundation scholarship grants were awarded on January 27, 2020 to:

Peter McNeal  $2,500
London Keller $1,500
Andrew Klimiuk $1,000
Tyler Fronk  $1,000

Congratulations to these members who distinguished themselves during the Spring 2019 semester…and thanks again to all of you who have made contributions to the Educational Foundation in the past to allow these recognitions to be made.  We will be making additional awards soon based upon Fall 2019 results.  So stay tuned.

Fraternally and Appreciatively,

Edgar B. Grass '77
Foundation Board Member
