A Tribute to Bruce Lauritzen

From Aksarben Board Chair, Leslie Andersen, “We are saddened to learn of the passing of Bruce Lauritzen. A generous and beloved figure in Nebraska business and philanthropy. Nebraska is a better place because of Bruce Lauritzen’s commitment to helping others.”

Aksarben is proud to have had Bruce Lauritzen serve as a Governor from 1988 to 2013 and Governor Emeritus of our organization. The Lauritzen Family was one of the original endowment donors of the Aksarben Scholarship Program in 2004, and Bruce Lauritzen was named King of Aksarben in 2001.

On behalf of the Aksarben Foundation, our deepest sympathies go out to the entire Lauritzen family.
