De Wall, Powell and Remein Scholarship

On January 25, 1997, a tragic automobile accident took the life of Calvin senior Brian De Wall (Fruitport, MI) and seriously injured Moni Anders (Galena, OH), Lori Powell (Worthington, OH), and Matt Remein (Silver Springs, MD). In time, Moni recovered, but Lori and Matt remained limited by brain injury, and Lori eventually passed away in May 2006. In October 1999, a group of 46 Calvin students, staff and alumni (organized by the Chaplain’s Office) ran in the Chicago Marathon to raise money and encourage the De Wall, Powell and Remein families whose lives are forever affected by that crash. The endowed dollars from this fundraising effort are entrusted to the alumni association to give thanks to God for their lives and to provide assistance for future Calvin students in their names.
