The Louisville architecture firm Kersey and Kersey announced earlier this month that they have created a $10,000 endowed scholarship in honor of Don Swoboda, a former dean of the Division of Extended Learning and Outreach who recently retired, according to a press release issued today.

Steve and Cheryl Kersey said they learned about DELO while working on the expansion project of the Knicely Conference Center and wanted to do something to help non-traditional students receive a higher education, according to the press release.

Beginning next fall, the scholarship will be available to non-traditional students, which means they must be 25 or older, admitted two or more years after graduating high school or returning to WKU after taking two or more years off, according to the press release.
