Jim Victor was a 1964 Graduate of Regis High School. Growing up, he was an avid reader, a desktop architect, a model car maker, a paperboy, a hot rod enthusiast, a music buff, a shiny new clothes guy, a high 山东体彩11选5开奖 student council president, a college fraternity brother at Iowa State University and then a graduate firmly convinced he could light the world on fire. And he did.
He joined the financial markets as a professional broker, adviser, and a voracious researcher of what the market does and why. He was often called on by television, newspapers and magazines to help people better understand the market and why some choices were better than others.
Away from the office, he gave generously of his time and resources. Serving on countless boards for a variety of institutions throughout the Quad-Cities, Jim was uncommonly dedicated. But of all his efforts, Junior Achievement unquestionably was the brightest star in his tireless drive to bring the best principles of business, entrepreneurship and professionalism to life in young people.
Jim had a way of joining the private sector with the business world to achieve community service goals. As a person he was a great example of showing the importance of giving time, talent and treasure to the community.
He often said: “Those to whom much is given, much is expected.” Jim’s family, friends, education, hard work and his undying dedication gave him a great deal. And in keeping with his belief, every day and every person he encountered in giving back was his joy fulfilled.
This scholarship is dedicated as a tribute to Jim Victor and the life he lived. Hopefully it will pave the way for others to get the best education in order to seek the ideals that Jim stood for.
The scholarship is sponsored by the Regis Class of 1964, who welcomes all others to contribute.
