Bettin Family BAHOF Scholarship
About Dr. Stan Bettin
This new scholarship was established by Dr. Stanley Bettin ’61, inducted to the Braves Hall of Fame in 2005. Bettin participated in football (1957-60), basketball (1958-59), and golf (1958-1961) for the Braves. As his BAHOF biography notes, he was a leader and an integral part of championship teams in all three sports. After graduating from Ottawa University, Bettin received his DDS from the University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC) in 1965. He is member of the American Dental Association, Kansas Dental Association, American Orthodontic Society, American Endodontic Society, and a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. He is retired from private practice in Lyons, Kansas.
Bettin has been a member of the Ottawa University Board of Trustees since 1990 and is a past vice chair and chair. He is currently serving as a Life Trustee. Bettin and his wife Elda have three children and five grandchildren who have all attended Ottawa University, with several earning their master’s degrees. Higher education and Ottawa University are both very important to the Bettin family.
