LAE Scholarship recipients

On Thursday, Sept. 19, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s College of Liberal Arts and Education recognized student scholarship recipients at a reception held in the Nohr Gallery. The College of LAE awarded 79 scholarships to 73 students.

The reception opened with a welcome by Dr. D. Joanne Wilson, provost and vice chancellor for Academic Affairs at UW-Platteville. Following, Dr. Melissa Gormley, dean of the College of LAE, presented the general College of LAE scholarships, then each department’s chair or representative presented her or his department’s scholarships. Those in the audience who had established scholarships or donated to them also were recognized.

“The College of LAE’s annual scholarship reception is a special time for us to recognize the donors whose generous gifts make it possible for us to honor student dedication and talent,” said Gormley. “Students are greatly appreciative of the financial support. It not only makes it possible for them to pursue their studies, it makes them feel valued, and it motivates them to strive for excellence in all that they do.”

The College of LAE’s School of Education will honor its scholarship recipients at a reception on Wednesday, Oct. 9 in the Nohr Gallery. The College of LAE’s Department of Health and Human Performance recognized its scholarship recipients last spring.
