Annual APMP Scholarships Awarded

APMP students hard at work.

The School of Business and Economics awards annual scholarships to students who participate in the Applied Portfolio Management Program (APMP).  The scholarships are made possible by generous donors who have setup funds to recognize specific skill sets and characteristics in the recipients.  Each scholarship is awarded in the Spring of the academic year. We are very grateful to the generous donors that provide excellent opportunities to stand-out APMP students at Michigan Tech.

2012 Scholarship Recipients

Clarence Fisher APMP Scholarship – Jessie Patrick

Chester Reault APMP Scholarship – Todd Storm

Norb Verville APMP Scholarship – Mike Harri

Joe Dancy LSGI Scholarship – Dan Eskola

Hugh Makens APMP Scholarship – Pat Carroll

Jeff Call Memorial APMP Scholarship – Rachael Ristau

Scholarship Descriptions

The Clarence Fisher, Chester Rheault, and Norb Verville APMP scholarships recognize the impact these three former Advisory Board members had in founding APMP.  Recipients of these scholarships this year were: Jesse Patrick, Todd Storm, and Mike Harri, respectively.

As an APMP Board member from origination through today, the Hugh Makens APMP scholarship honors Hugh’s continual support of the students and the program.  Pat Carroll is the 2012 recipient.

Dan Eskola was the recipient of the LSGI Fund Scholarship, also known as the Joe Dancy LSGI Scholarship.  This scholarship is awarded to the student who displays excellent academic achievement, expresses an interest in finance or applied mathematics, and demonstrates high moral and ethical characteristics.  The LSGI Fund is a hedge fund managed by Joe Dancy, a Michigan Tech alumnus from Dallas, TX.

Finally, the Jeff Call Memorial Scholarship was given to Rachael Ristau.  Jeff Call, a 2002 graduate of the School and the APMP, passed away unexpectedly in 2006.  To honor Jeff’s contributions to the School and the APMP Advisory Board, together with Jeff’s parents, the groups established the Jeff Call Memorial Scholarship.  It is awarded annually to the senior who demonstrates the highest degree of commitment to APMP—a commitment Jeff displayed every day during his time at Michigan Tech.

School of Business and Economics student, Todd Storm tackles classes and handles being the Huskies defensive end. Storm was named GLIAC Defensive Lineman of the Year for the second straight year after finishing second in the league with 7.5 sacks. Storm was third in the GLIAC in tackles for loss (14.5), and posted 68 tackles on the season – fourth most on the team.

In addition to Todd’s athletic accomplishments, he is also a member of the Applied Portfolio Management Program (APMP). Associate Professor Dean Johnson and director of APMP, added,  “While the path to sack the quarterback is challenging, Todd has also taken the challenging path in his academic studies. Although a marketing major, Todd has elected to enroll in our demanding portfolio management program. I appreciate his dedication both on and off the field.”

The senior finished his career with 18.5 sacks – third most all-time at Michigan Tech, and earned All-GLIAC First Team honors along with three other seniors. Thirteen Huskies in total gained accolades from GLIAC, and six Huskies were named All-GLIAC Honorable Mention.

The Michigan Tech football team compiled a 7-4 overall record and 6-4 GLIAC slate in 2011.
