Class of 1972 Scholars
We are pleased to announce our Scholar Selection Committee's choices for the four Class of 1972 Scholars.
The Class of 1972 Scholar Selection Committee is comprised of the following members: Fritz Cammerzell, Bill deGolian, Kip Forbes, Marty Franks, Dotty Jannarone Kemper, Bob Murley, Priscilla Wohlfurth Stumm; Bob Wright, ex officio; and Ron Brown (Scholarship Chair).
In 2007 our Executive Committee expanded the Class of '72 Scholars to one in each undergraduate class. We ask the Financial Aid Office to nominate students using the following criteria: academic 1s; participant in a major sport; alternating men and women (i.e., female 2013; male 2014; female 2015; male 2016); geographic diversity; racial/ethnic diversity; and if possible, first member of a family to attend college. This last is always hard, since Financial Aid usually doesn't know.
Our Newest '72 Scholar
Caitlin Bish ’23
Lancaster, New York
Study/Career Plans: I am currently undecided on a major, but my interests range all the way from medicine and biology to politics and economics.
Other Information/Scholarship Interests:
In high school, I was a four-year starter for the varsity basketball and varsity softball teams, earning the title of captain for both teams. Through my training and involvement in these sports, I developed a passion for personal improvement through fitness and a curiosity to learn more about the anatomy of the human body. I was also involved in student senate, serving as president of the Class of 2019 for all four years. As class president, I gained valuable leadership skills and had the opportunity to collaborate with school officials concerning important issues with the school. I was also a member of the National Honor Society and Campus Ministry, where I served as an altar server for school liturgies. Having attended a Catholic elementary and high school that emphasized the value of community service, I developed a love for helping those less fortunate than myself. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music and playing the piano, guitar, and ukulele.
