Dr. Ken Luedtke Memorial Scholarship
presented by WCA & LSM Chiropractic
The Wisconsin Chiropractic Association, in conjunction with the Luedtke-Storm-Mackey Chiropractic Clinic (LSM), is proud to announce the Dr. Kenneth Luedtke Scholarship.
Dr. Luedtke was a giant in our profession, whose dedication through political advocacy advanced chiropractic both in Wisconsin and nationally. His tireless efforts resulted in several pro-chiropractic laws being enacted during his lifetime. He served as both President of the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association and the American Chiropractic Association.
To honor his legacy, a $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to a student who demonstrates both academic achievement and chiropractic advocacy in the community.
The 2019 scholarship winner is Amanda Mathwig. Amanda truly shows a positive image of the chiropractic profession. Not only is she a full time student at Logan University, she interns at Institutio De Medicina Deportiva, performs concussion exams at Cheer Gym, is Secretary and Vice President of Lambda Kappa Chi, gives tours for Logan’s Cadaver Lab, is President of the Launch Club, and a member of WCA and ACA. Amanda resides in Lodi, Wisconsin.
The 2020 scholarship winner will be announced at the WCA 2020 Fall Convention. The winner will receive an overnight stay at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells and will be recognized at the evening awards ceremony on Saturday, September 26, 2020.
