Aquila Club Scholarship Endowment established

The Morehead State University Foundation has announced the Aquila Club Scholarship Endowment, a fund to provide scholarships to Morehead State University students.   

The Aquila Club was founded in 1962 at Morehead State College as a men's social club with a goal of fostering fellowship, comradery and social service among male students with a common purpose. In 1971, the Aquila Club became a chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity making the original Aquila Club members a unique "Band of Brothers." 

Together, these alumni collectively raised $50,000 to create the endowment to assist MSU students. 

“The inspiration to create a scholarship to memorialize the legacy of The Aquila Club came following my meeting with Alicia Parker, MSU Alumni Relations. It just seemed like a great way to remember our brotherhood while making a meaningful contribution to our University,” commented Robert Rasor (68). 

All students are eligible for the scholarship with a preference for students who are graduates of Kentucky high schools. The scholarship will be awarded annually.  

In recognition of the club’s charitable action, the Aquila Club Lounge in the Adron Doran University Center has been named in their honor. This area welcomes students as they enter through the newly renovated portion of the student building and is adorned with a plaque that describes the Aquila Club’s legacy at MSU.  

“We wanted to create a scholarship that could help students for generations to come,” said Andy Prefontaine (71).  Andy was the last president of the Aquila Club.    

This scholarship was established as part of the Soar to New Heights Scholarship Campaign.
