The Braves Scholarship Society
With three daughters who love tennis, Mark and Vicki Petersen decided to add one more player to the family.
is comprised of Bradley University alumni and friends of intercollegiate athletics who have chosen to support one of 14 varsity programs. Through membership in this society, donors have the opportunity to personally follow an athlete’s growth throughout his or her Bradley career.
“Our first athlete was volleyball player Lindsay Stalzer ’05 from our hometown of Kewanee,” says Mark Petersen. “Now, our girls love tennis, so we thought it would be natural for them to have a tennis player as a role model.” They recently chose their second athlete, Kim Braun ’09, through their support of the Braves Scholarship Society.
“I think it’s great if you can make a difference in the life of a college athlete, help support the University, and provide a family for an athlete for four years,” says Vicki Petersen.
The most important benefit is the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to make the Bradley athletic program one of the best in the nation.
