UW-Eau Claire Freshman Kori Butendorf Awarded
Brian Stricklin Memorial Scholarship

RELEASED: July 10, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — Kori Butendorf, Oconomowoc, who will enter the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire this fall, has been awarded a Brian Stricklin Memorial Scholarship. Butendorf is the daughter of Bob and Cheryl Butendorf.

The scholarship, designated for an outstanding student from Waukesha County planning to attend the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, was established with memorial and family gifts received by the UW-Eau Claire Foundation in memory of Brian Stricklin, a UW-Eau Claire alumnus and honor student, who died suddenly at his home in Waukesha in August 2004.

Stricklin was an honor student at Waukesha West High School and a business major who graduated with honors from UW-Eau Claire in May 2004. He was an avid gamer and was an active member and officer of the UW-Eau Claire Gamers Guild. Preference for the scholarship in his name is given to applicants who plan to major in business and/or have an interest in gaming, environmental protection or study abroad opportunities.

UW-Eau Claire is consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report and other national publications as one of the nation's best educational values and among the top public regional universities in the Midwest.
