Donor Profile

The PETE HUDSON SCHOLARSHIP IN INSURANCE was established by H. Peter Hudson. Mr. Hudson entered the insurance business in 1959 and was concerned that there was an absence of opportunity to learn the business in a campus environment. In 1988, Larry Coleman asked him to join Indiana State University's efforts to develop a degree major in insurance and risk management. Within three years the ISU Insurance and Risk Management Program became one of the top four in the nation. Many individuals helped Mr. Hudson along the pathway of life, and it is his hope that ISU students will be able to pursue their dreams through the establishment of this scholarship.
