SCHOLARSHIP INFO:  Jim and Ann Frein have established this student scholarship in honor of Harry L. Shadle, professor of finance in the Industrial Administration program.  Professor Shadle retired at the early age of 58 in 1970 after 21 years at Iowa State University.  Professor Shadle had a tremendous impact on Jim through his mentoring, leadership and friendship. As graduation approached in the spring of 1967, Jim Frein had no intention of accepting an offer he’d received from the Harris Bank in Chicago. He wanted to work in investments, not banking. Then Professor Harry Shadle set him straight. “He said, Jim, you have to open your eyes a little bit. You ‘II have plenty of opportunities in a big city bank that you wouldn’t have here,” Frein chuckled. “He was right.”

 

Harry Shadle’s interest in and affection for students are what motivated Jim and Ann Shaff-Frein to announce a major gift to the Harry L. Shadle Endowed Scholarship, a renewable award for full-time undergraduate finance majors in the College of Business.  The scholarship is designed for students who have potential but need “encouragement and guidance.” After all, guidance and encouragement were Harry Shadle’s legacy. In addition to the courses he taught in industrial administration, Shadle was a popular advisor to numerous campus organizations, from the VEISHEA Committee to the Greek Week Central Committees to Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. “Harry inspired and pushed students -especially those who needed special encouragement -to grow into successful careers and their own mentoring roles,” says Maralee Shadle, who funded the Shadle Scholarship annually after her husband’s death in 1994.

 

The Frein’s gift will endow the scholarship by creating a permanent investment fund, the proceeds of which will be distributed annually to scholarship recipients. Earnings in excess of disbursements will be reinvested, so that over time the fund’s value will grow to support even more students. “Harry was a great teacher who really liked kids,” said Jim Frein, who now serves on the CoB Dean’s Advisory Council. “We hope this scholarship will have a positive impact on students just as his interaction with them did.”

SCHOLARSHIP INFO: Joan Burrell, for whom this scholarship was named, grew up in Ames and graduated from Iowa State University in 1962 with a bachelor’s degree in home economics. She married and, as a military wife, set up residence all over the country and even overseas and gave birth to three children. After 13 years of marriage, she divorced and moved with her three children back to Ames so her children could be closer to their grandparents. Here she lived, worked and raised her children until her passing in May 2012.

 

First out of necessity and then out of personal initiative and a desire to help others, Joan enjoyed a successful career at First National Bank. She consistently embraced opportunities to further develop herself professionally including completing the Graduate School of Banking program at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Joan was promoted numerous times in her nearly 30 years at First National and, in 1993 she became the first female vice president in the bank’s history. All this while cooking meals, checking homework, treating ailments, refereeing arguments, shuttling to and from practices, doing laundry, picking up clutter and all of the other millions of activities that go into successfully raising three children.

 

Joan’s family, many friends, and colleagues fondly remember her as strong, independent, compassionate and generous. She truly knew something about everything, but shared her extensive knowledge in a humble, self-effacing way. Joan was an accomplished businesswoman, a sports fanatic, a gifted interior decorator and landscaper, a tremendous cook, an avid reader and Sudoku pro, a painter and a global traveler. She served as a disciplined and ethical role model for her three children, and instilled her values of hard work, creativity, integrity and resourcefulness in each.

 

But she did all of this quietly, without expectation or even desire for accolades or attention. This was the way Joan lived her entire life – taking on challenges, excelling at them and never boasting of her achievements. She led and inspired by example. In memory of her life and achievements, the family has established a scholarship at Iowa State University to assist single, working parents in their efforts to improve themselves through education.

Their years at Iowa State provided an excellent education and the life skills in other areas including communications, leadership, planning, and organization made possible by Iowa State’s excellent opportunities in extra-curricular activities.  For these reasons, the Ecklund family is delighted to have the opportunity to give back to the university that has given their family so much.
