Scholarship Campaign Paying Tribute to Andrew Repka Passes Halfway Point!

September 07, 2017

Thanks go to donors who have generously contributed to the Andrew J. Repka Memorial Scholarship Endowment. We are deeply grateful that your gifts have propelled this campaign to more than $9,100 on its way to a $15,000 goal!

You are helping extend the legacy of an amazing Ole Miss alumnus, who was wise and big-hearted and made everyone around him feel loved, welcomed, and respected. We know how Andrew felt about Ole Miss and believe he would be pleased to have his name on a scholarship endowment at a place he loved so much.

We’re embracing that incomparable time each year on the Oxford campus with vibrant football weekends that feature enthusiastic tailgating in our legendary Grove. We’re picturing Andrew in his Ole Miss cap and Ray Bans, with that brilliant signature smile of his. Andrew will always be a member of the Ole Miss Family, and we truly want to push this scholarship campaign over the top.

The Andrew J. Repka Memorial Scholarship will impact the lives of many Ole Miss accountancy students chosen as recipients. If you have given to this campaign, thank you! If you haven’t yet, please consider taking the time to make a gift of any size.

And please encourage your friends, family members, and colleagues to support this campaign. Let’s honor Andrew for all that he added to our lives. Special thanks go to Andrew’s Silas Simmons colleague and friend Janis Holder, who wrote the below poem to celebrate his life.
