April 12, 2011

2985April 12, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — Two DePauw University juniors who are members of Phi Delta Theta, Indiana Zeta chapter, are being rewarded for their scholarship, campus and community involvement. Danny Capes and Mitch Strobl are recipients of Albert L. Lund '48 Scholarships for the 2011-12 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. Thirty-eight Lund Scholarships have now been awarded. 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 at the chapter's annual scholarship banquet tonight. Others on hand for the announcement included DePauw President Brian W. Casey, financial aid officers and several professors.

"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 goals, which serves the University well. It's an annual privilege and thrill to honor these young scholars."
