Dr. Thomas Pribek, a retired English Professor from UW-La Crosse, established this fund to support two annual scholarship awards. The first is a scholarship in memory of his parents Robert and Ruth Pribek. Robert was a staff physician at the La Crosse Clinic, St. Francis Hospital, and the UW-La Crosse Health Center, and Ruth was an educator and volunteer at the YWCA. An annual scholarship from the fund will be awarded to a continuing UW-La Crosse English major in good standing who has demonstrated a commitment to service and giving back to the community. The second award is to a UW-La Crosse faculty for research and instructional development.
