Buddy Dillard Scholarship
Each year the Nu Zeta Alumni Association presents the Buddy Dillard Scholarship to deserving active brothers.
Buddy (Nu 933) served as the Chapter Alumni Advisor for several years before he passed away in 2004. He was instrumental in leading the fraternity through some difficult times. He was the recipient of the “Order of Merit” from Lambda Chi Alpha National Fraternity for his dedicated service.
The scholarship was begun in 2010 with the help of David Burch (Nu 1038) in memory of Buddy. At that time, David served on the National Fraternity’s Educational Foundation Board. David made a significant contribution toward the initial funding of the scholarship.
