12.19.14 |
Lebanon Valley College’s English Department recently established the O’Donnell Scholarship in English to recognize and reward students displaying excellence in their academic pursuits. Six current LVC students were selected to be the inaugural recipients of this prestigious scholarship based upon their academic success and involvement in extracurricular activities within the Department.

As recipients of the O’Donnell Scholarship, these students have multiple opportunities to explore, apply, and practice the skills they have acquired through the English Department, providing them with a challenging and engaging Lebanon Valley College education.

This scholarship is named after the late Agnes M. Boyle O'Donnell, esteemed professor emerita of English. She served the English Department from 1961 to 1987 and participated actively in College activities during her retirement. Inaugural recipients of the O’Donnell Scholarship in English include:

• Amber Shay ’15 of Newmanstown, Pa. Shay, a graduate of Eastern Lebanon County High School, is pursuing a bachelor of arts in English with a concentration in communications. She has written for La Vie Collegienne and contributed to its digital companion, Off The Tracks.

• Jarrod Goss ’16 of Thompsontown, Pa. Goss, a graduate of East Juniata Junior-Senior High School, is pursuing a bachelor of arts in philosophy and English with a concentration in literature. After graduation, Goss plans to attend graduate school and later become a professor to keep himself in academia and inspire students as he has been inspired.

• Grace Bailey ’17 of Lititz, Pa. Bailey, a graduate of Lancaster Christian School, is pursuing a bachelor of arts in English with a concentration in communications and a minor in business administration. With her degrees, she hopes to work for a company’s communications department where she feels inspired and motivated by the vision to connect with both other employees and customers and work toward a common goal.

• Quinn Orris ’17 of Harrisburg, Pa. Orris, a graduate of Northern Senior High School, is pursuing a bachelor of arts in English with a concentration in literature and a bachelor of science in psychology. With his degrees, he hopes to continue on to graduate school at Cornell University to be a part of the American Studies Program and American Indian Program. His dream job is to become an English professor with a focus in American Indian Studies and Literature.

• Hannah Brough ’18 of Lewisburg, Pa. Brough, a graduate of Lewisburg Area High School, is pursuing a bachelor of arts in English and is a member of LVC’s Pride of the Valley marching band.

• Julia Wiker ’18 of Ephrata, Pa. is an inaugural O’Donnell Scholar in English. Wiker, a graduate of Ephrata High School, is pursuing a bachelor of arts in English with a concentration in communications and a minor in German. With her degrees, she hopes to have a career in journalism. She is interested in photography, design, and travel, and her dream job is to write for an interior design or lifestyle magazine.

The goal of Lebanon Valley College’s English program is to teach students to write, speak, and think more effectively—through classes, internships, independent studies, student teaching, and theater work. English majors pursue a range of careers, including journalism, education, publishing, law, digital media, arts administration, theater, advertising, public relations, and technical writing.
