Doane Student Earns Nebraska Business Hall of Fame Scholarship
Feerhusen, of Lincoln, received the scholarship at the Nebraska Business Hall of Fame banquet Feb. 1 at the Cornhusker Mariott Hotel in Lincoln, Nebraska Chamber of Commerce and Industry
The Nebraska Business Hall of Fame Scholarship Foundation is designed to provide scholarship assistance to deserving students attending Nebraska colleges and universities who are seeking degrees in business-related fields of study. The scholarships are awarded to full-time sophomore or junior students enrolled in a Nebraska-accredited business school who maintain a 3.0 or higher grade point average and demonstrate leadership in extracurricular activities.
Feerhusen is pursuing a degree in accounting and finance at Doane. He is the son of Randy and Mari Feerhusen. The family has owned and operated Del Gould Meat Company in Lincoln for three generations. His father also owns Lincoln Irrigation, Inc.
The family's examples influenced Feerhusen's decision to pursue a career in business.
"Being involved in a family-owned business allowed me to see the dedication required to run a business and the importance of becoming a self-reliant/responsible individual," Feerhusen said.
He plans to own an investment firm specializing in securities and real estate.
Feerhusen completed an internship with Edward Jones and will complete an internship with CarVal Investors in August.
Amy Moorman, associate professor of business at Doane, nominated Feerhusen for the scholarship.
