This Son of a Peanut Farmer Wants to Shell Out
Following a Chillicothe night nobody wanted to end along the Luke Bryan Farm Tour, the country music megastar brought his agriculture scholarship to Bradley. Providing aid to students at local colleges and universities at every stop on the tour since 2009, four Bradley students with backgrounds in agriculture or farming will receive a onetime $2,000 scholarship. So get your boots on, kick the dust up, and celebrate our students keeping their country on.
Bustos and Durbin Visit Campus
Bradley University presented retiring U.S. Representative Cheri Bustos with an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters this April following her long career upholding the bipartisanship and grace the Institute for Principled Leadership in Public Service (IPL) aims to endorse.
Celebrating IPL’s 15th anniversary as they honored Bustos were figures spanning both sides of the political spectrum, including Peoria Mayor Rita Bryant Ali M.A. ’92 and former Mayor Jim Ardis, the Honorable Ray LaHood ’71, HON ’11, as well as Congressman Darin LaHood and Senator Dick Durbin by video. Durbin joined Bradley President Stephen Standifird and other distinguished guests a few days earlier to announce the passage of the fiscal year 2022 appropriations bill, including $850,000 secured to enhance Bradley’s nursing program.
