Two Loras College students have been honored by the scholastic honor society Delta Epsilon Sigma (DES) in its annual fellowship and scholarship competition.
Hannah Temeyer of Manchester, a 2016 graduate, was awarded the Fitzgerald Fellowship, while Jenna Walleser, of Cascade, who starts her senior year in the fall, won the Fitzgerald Scholarship, named after the founder and first secretary-treasurer of DES, The Rev. Edward A. Fitzgerald of Loras College.
Seniors apply for the Fitzgerald Fellowship that awards winners $1,200 to go toward tuition for first-year graduate work.
Temeyer graduated Magna Cum Laude in May with a bachelor’s degree in public relations.
Junior-year members apply for the Fitzgerald Scholarship to receive $1,200 toward tuition costs for their senior year as an undergraduate.
Delta Epsilon Sigma was founded in 1938 at Loras College by Fitzgerald as a Catholic honor society. As a result, Loras became the first DES chapter in the nation. DES recognizes academic accomplishments, fosters scholarly activities, and encourages a sense of intellectual community among its members.
