For more than 40 years, John Stumpf, Evansville ’71, faithfully served his home chapter in a variety of capacities, including as AVC president. He is remembered with great appreciation for his conscientious management of the chapter facility. Calling on his many years as a banking executive and previous experience in construction, he oversaw fundraising for and construction of the chapter’s home in the 1980s, as well as renovations in the years that followed. He also served as the AVC’s go-to expert on other issues related to housing and risk management.
A mentor to many on matters related to life and SigEp, Stumpf was also a longtime supporter of the Educational Foundation and leader in the NUTS! McAuliffe Society. He received the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2011, and the AVC created a scholarship in Stumpf’s honor in 2013.
Aside from serving the chapter, he was a regular attendee and frequent organizer of quarterly lunches, bringing chapter alumni together to maintain their strong connection.
