New Educational Endowment Established at LHU
Thanks to the new Susan Selleck Scholarship Fund, a Lock Haven University student majoring in early childhood education will benefit from a scholarship every year.
The family and friends of Susan Joy Selleck (Boyles) have established the Susan Selleck Scholarship Fund with the Lock Haven University Foundation in memory of Selleck, a member of the 1973 graduating class of Lock Haven State College who passed away last summer. She worked as a library aide at Washington Elementary School in Williamsport and then spent the majority of her career as a kindergarten and first grade teacher within the Jersey Shore Area School District.
Because of Selleck’s love of education and her devotion to the Jersey Shore Area School District, scholarship preference will be given to a Jersey Shore Area High School graduate. The first award will be given in spring 2013.
“We are extremely pleased with the graciousness of the Selleck family in providing an endowed scholarship that is to be awarded to an early childhood major,” said Dr. Jane Penman, Interim Dean for the College of Education and Human Services. “Scholarships allow us to recognize outstanding students and reward them for their excellence. The Susan Selleck Scholarship will serve to provide financial assistance annually to a deserving student for many years to come. We are very grateful for this wonderful gift to the University.”
The Foundation administers approximately 200 individual scholarships for students at the University. Applicants are encouraged to apply for scholarships through the Foundation’s website, www.lhufoundation.org, or by contacting the Foundation at the Durrwachter Alumni Conference Center,10 Susquehanna Ave., Lock Haven, Pa. 17745.
