UW-Stout alumni creating scholarship in honor of classmate killed in Vietnam War

MENOMONIE, WI (WTAQ) - Some UW-Stout alumni are creating a scholarship in honor of their classmate who was killed in the Vietnam War.

Lieutenant John Abrams graduated from Stout 50 years ago – and he died in 1968, when his Navy helicopter crashed after getting hit by enemy fire.

Abrams was in the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity – and 8 of his frat brothers decided to create a scholarship at UW-Stout in Abrams’ memory. They raised about $41,000, and the first John Leon Abrams Memorial Scholarship was presented this fall.

Upper class students in plastics engineering are eligible for the award – along with veterans and their descendants.
