“In a community as small as Waldorf College, every student makes an impact — and Tad’s impact was impossible to miss. With his irrepressible spirit, outstanding sense of humor and zest for life, Tad was a delightful addition to our campus. Whether he was wearing his customary cheeky grin or the homecoming king’s crown, Tad made irreplaceable memories that make me smile even as I hurt for his family and many, many friends.” Dr. Bob Alsop, President

Tad was Music Director for KZOW (2011-12) and also Wal-tv Station Manager (2009-11).

The Tad “Wheelz” Memorial Scholarship has been established through the Waldorf Lutheran College Foundation by Waldorf students, faculty, staff and friends as a way to honor Tad. All donations received by Dec. 31, 2012 will be awarded to a Communications student with exemplary character next spring during Honors Day.  To contribute to the scholarship, send your check payable to Waldorf Foundation, 106 S. 6th Street, Forest City, IA 50436 or online. Please designate your gift to the Tad Venzke Scholarship.
