A graduating senior in Indiana State University’s College of Business has received the Gene Lundry Scholarship from the Indiana Risk and Insurance Management Society.

The $4,000 scholarship was awarded to Travis Walker of Terre Haute in recognition of his high grade-point average, excellent communications skills and professionalism. Four insurance and risk management students from throughout the state were nominated for the 2008 award. Walker was the sole recipient.

A 2004 graduate of Terre Haute North Vigo High School, Walker is the son of John and Deborah Siefert. While at Indiana State, he was active in the Student Investment Club and served as vice president of the ISU chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma, the student insurance, risk management and actuarial science society.
