James C. Semerad Memorial Hockey Scholarship Fund

According to the Winter 2007 "One Nebraska" ("News From the University of Nebraska Foundation") newsletter, the estate of Jim Semerad has endowed the "James C. Semerad Memorial Hockey Scholarship Fund" for UNO hockey players who attend summer session classes at UNO.

Jim was a true friend to UNO hockey ... one of founding members of the Blue Line Club and the original leader of the BLC Luncheon committee. Jim died unexpectedly in 2004, and it's neat to see his name continue to be associated with Maverick Hockey.

In the article, UNO Athletic Director David Miller said, "The demand in intercollegiate athletics makes it very important for student-athletes to continue their education through the summer. We appreciate the Semerad gift because it helps our fine young men continue their educational endeavors."

The article concludes with, "Semerad was instrumental in bringing hockey to UNO in the 1990s."
