Jacob and Rena Van Dellen Scholarship

This scholarship was established by Mr. Theodore Van Dellen in honor of his parents, Jacob and Rena Van Dellen. Theodore's daughter, Karen, and her husband, John Feltis, added to this scholarship on the death of Ruth Vis Van Dellen, her mother and Theodore's wife. Jacob and Rena Van Dellen moved back to Grand Rapids (where they had been born) so that their three children could obtain a Christian education, first in the Grand Rapids Christian Schools and then at Calvin. Their legacy continues to following generations, with three named scholarships established at Calvin by their children and grandchildren.
