The Rollicking Crew Scholarships
Jeff Yapp is an avid philanthropist who believes in giving back to his community. One of his most cherished causes is promoting access to education, as he personally has experienced the value of high quality post-secondary education.
In 1976 Jeff Yapp attended the University of Michigan, graduating in 1980 with a BBA in Marketing and Operations. During his undergrad, Jeff met a group of men who quickly became great friends. To keep this friendship alive, the group, nicknamed The Rollicking Crew, made a pact to meet once a year.
As the years went on, the Crew continued to keep their promise, and eventually decided to establish an endowed scholarship fund at the University of Michigan.
“Although we came from relatively different backgrounds, our experience at U-M was the common denominator… Our friendship, like our pride in our alma mater, is unwavering.”
-Jim Deleth, The Rollicking Crew
