Tommy Feddeler, a Trine University junior from Wheatfield, Indiana, is the 2021-2022
recipient of the General Lewis B. Hershey Scholarship.
The General Lewis B. Hershey Scholarship was established in 1988 by Army, Navy and
Air Force veterans in the United States and Canada to honor Gen. Lewis B. Hershey,
a Tri-State College (now Trine University) alumnus and former Director of Selective
Service for the United States. Hershey Hall, the Trine University fieldhouse, is named
in his honor.
The scholarship is awarded each year to a Trine University sophomore or junior who
has demonstrated academic achievement, with a minimum cumulative grade point average
of 3.0, and leadership potential.
Feddeler is the son of Thomas Feddeler Jr. and Noel Feddeler, and a graduate of Kankakee
Valley High School in Wheatfield. He is concurrently pursuing his Bachelor of Science
in business administration with a major in accounting and his Master of Business Administration
at Trine, and plans to earn Certified Public Accountant licensure.
He is president of the Trine Accounting Club and is currently a full-time intern at
BKD LLP in Fort Wayne.
