Acacia’s Newest Endowment
Bruce & Sheila Froendt (#859, 1980)
It’s our honor and privilege to announce the establishment of a new scholarship to be awarded annually
to the Venerable Dean of the Nebraska Chapter of Acacia Fraternity. The Froendt Venerable Dean
Scholarship aims to reward the Venerable Dean for his tireless work, never-ending dedication, and
leadership of the active chapter. We hope that this scholarship helps recognize the importance of the
office and contributions made to the active chapter’s success by the Venerable Dean.
The Froendt Venerable Dean Scholarship is designated to be $1,500, awarded annually through the University
of Nebraska Foundation and presented to the current Venerable Dean of the Nebraska Chapter of
Acacia every Spring. The recipient will receive a letter from the University of Nebraska Foundation or the
University’s financial aid office regarding the award and its payment.
Acacia Fraternity is an exceptional place during a critical time of growth in a
young man’s life. The ties of Brotherhood established at Acacia while in college
can endure a lifetime. While it is the responsibility and duty of each
active chapter member to give himself for his brothers’ benefit, the Venerable
Dean and chapter officers play a significant role in working for the entire
active chapter’s success and happiness.
A huge THANK YOU to Brother Bruce Froendt for this wonderful gift to the Active Chapter. We hope
that this gift only further emboldens and invigorates the Venerable Dean to even more outstanding contributions,
for as our Brotherhood believes, “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much
