The Simon Memorial Scholarship is named in memory of Victor H. Simon (Beta Lambda/Akron 1935), an engineering major who started his own company in Chicago called Pioneer Service Engineering Consultants, specializing in power generation. His firm was later sold to the Fluor Corporation. During his career, Brother Simon became an industry leader in power generation consulting. He designated a portion of his estate in the form of a planned gift to the Foundation Chapter to provide an endowed scholarship fund for engineering majors within Theta Chi.
