FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – West Palm Beach, FL —A recently endowed business scholarship has been named for local attorney Eddie Stephens. The “Eddie Stephens South Florida Leadership Fund,” which was funded with more than $20,000, will provide annual grants for students at the University of Miami, Florida Atlantic University and Florida International College who are members of the professional fraternity Delta Sigma PI. The grants will allow the students to attend national leadership conferences and professional development programming.
“The fund was named after Eddie because he was the driving force in raising $20,000 to endow the scholarship,” said Mitch Simmons, Past Grand President of Delta Sigma Pi.
“Eddie Stephens really led the charge to create this prestigious fund”, said Gregory Koch, CEO and President of the Delta Sigma Pi Leadership Foundation. “This fund assists students in their education and preparation to become future leaders, and helps build great students of commerce.”
Stephens said he was motivated to raise funds for the endowment because there is a real need to teach business ethics to our future business leaders. “That’s not something you learn in a text book or in class. I had the fortune of these experiences when I was in college. I was lucky, I could afford it. A lot of these kids today, can’t.”
It’s an investment in their integrity and the future of our country, Stephens said. “I have also raised $20,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. There are a spectrum of charities that need help.”
