Scott Holly, internship coordinator in the PGA Golf Management program, has been selected to receive the Dennis Molfese, Sue Venteicher, and David Hansen Hero Award. Last summer, Holly saved a man from choking at the Plainview Country Club in Plainview, Neb. The selection committee was impressed with Scott’s act of heroism, and he will be recognized at an upcoming Laurels award celebration, when normal activities resume. Congratulations and sincere appreciation to Scott Holly for his outstanding contributions in support of the university and the Nebraska community!

About the Award

In the U.S., thirteen people die each day from kidney disease. Fortunately, Dennis Molfese was one of the lucky 5% who received a kidney transplant from a living donor. Dennis, his donor Sue, and his colleague Dave participated in the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine's 18-person transplant chain—nine donors and nine recipients—the largest internal transplant chain ever completed in Nebraska. Victoria and Dennis Molfese created this award to honor Sue Venteicher and David Hansen for their heroism in saving the life of another and to recognize others within the University of Nebraska-Lincoln community who demonstrate life-saving efforts in their service to others.
