This fund was established in 1966 by Arnold (1915-1991) and Helen Luehrs (1923-2010) in memory of their only child, Deloris E. Luehrs (1940-1956). Deloris (pictured) had planned to attend Dr. Martin Luther College to be a teacher, but she died at the age of 16 in a car accident. “We felt, as she could not fulfill her goal, we would like to help others as much as we could,” said her mother, Helen. “May God’s blessing go with them as they carry on in Deloris’s memory.”
Proceeds from the fund are distributed to students with financial need.
