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.
