Lund Receives Waller Scholarship

Donations Keep Education Vision Alive

Jonah Lund, a Fire Protection & Safety Technology major at Oklahoma State University (OSU), has received the $4,000 2015 Thomas S. Waller Memorial Scholarship from the Center for Life Safety Education (CLSE). Lund will enter his senior year in the fall with a perfect grade point average, having maintained a 4.0 throughout his first three years at OSU. A native of Prairie View, Wisconsin, Lund is a member of the Fire Protection Society and vice president of the Firefighter Combat Challenge Team. He describes himself as “passionate” and says: “… I am eager to apply my knowledge to the real world. Knowing that my actions and contributions can someday help save lives and property will always keep me motivated and interested to learn.”

The scholarship was established in 2005 to honor the man who devoted more than 40 years to the fire protection industry. It has provided some $30,000 to OSU FPST students. The scholarship is presented to juniors or seniors enrolled in the FPST program in the College of Engineering, Architecture & Technology at OSU, which is the oldest fire/safety-related program in North America and is the nation’s only ABET-accredited FPST program. As CLSE is a 501(c)(3) educational affiliate of AFSA, all contributions made to this scholarship fund is tax deductible.
