ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The initial selection committee will consist of Dave’s friends in the College of Communication & Creative Arts. As committee members retire, they will be replaced so that the committee will eventually have one representative from each department in the college. There will be only one scholarship winner per year. The committee may, at its discretion, award up to 3 “finalist” certificates. The committee will honor the recipient at lunch.
