The Dick McEachern Scholarship is awarded annually to one Alpha Alpha member who best demonstrates the qualities of brotherhood.
John Richard "Dick" McEachern, AA845, profoundly impacted his chapter brothers at Louisiana State University through his sincere interest in others, through his upbeat, positive attitude while waiting a heart transplant, and through his extraordinary ability to foster brotherhood among his peers.
An accomplished lawyer in the St. Louis area, Dick looked forward to a reunion of brothers in Baton Rouge in the fall of 2017. Sadly, he passed away in August 2017, less than a year after receiving his heart transplant. He will forever be remembered for his quick wit, kindness, intellectual curiosity, and genuine concern for others.
