This fund was established by Mr. Dan Hochstedler as a memorial to his longtime friend and mentor.
John Fiandt was a life-long educator that taught History and Government for over fifty years. He spent thirty two years at Angola High School and twenty years at Trine (formerly known as Tri-State) University. He enjoyed making his students think, motivated the quieter student, and was a champion of the mainstream student. John was always walking or riding his bike to get to class and around town. He was a shy, quirky individual that was very genuine and not one to follow the masses.
