The Shenaniganeer Endowment Leadership Award

The gentlemen founders of The Shenaniganeer Endowment Leadership Award are all products of that illustrious institution known as UFV.  As students, they were highly-engaged in campus life as leaders of various clubs and associations.  As alumni, they do adult things like manage companies, save lives, lead the UFV Association, create technology, collect Charm Antiquarks, and capture bad guys.

They live by a strict code of values including irreverence, mirth, and mischief.

Once upon a time, a beautiful muse named Single-Malt Scotch provided them with an epiphany that went something like “Hey, let’s make an endowment”.  And here we are today, in accordance with the prophecy.
