Looking for an inspired gift for the person who has everything? An endowed scholarship isn't exactly a stocking stuffer, but more than one person has been honored on a special occasion with the creation of a scholarship. Consider:
- In June, Thomas A. Keller III turned 69 and was surprised by his wife, Victoria, and other friends and family with a scholarship endowment made in his name. Keller, who is a lawyer at Moss & Barnett, was involved in the creation of the Edelstein-Keller Chair in Creative Writing, which honors his father and his father's lifelong friend David Edelstein, who were undergraduates together at the U.
- Bill Walter ('66 I.T.) established an endowed scholarship in the College of Education in honor of his wife Judy's 60th birthday. (Judy graduated from that school in 1966.) In fact, he was so pleased to learn that the scholarship would be matched by the President's Scholarship Match that he created additional scholarships in Men's Basketball and at the Carlson School of Management.
