Math Scholarship Recipient
August 26, 2020
Liz LeJeune ’22, from Lakewood, Colorado was awarded the Christine Fredricks Smith Memorial Scholarship, the College’s most prestigious award exclusively for Mathematics majors in May of 2020.
This Scholarship was established through a gift from Professor Emeritus Greg Fredricks in memory of his daughter, who graduated from the College in 1992 and was killed in an airplane crash in 2007.
This need-based Scholarship is awarded annually to a mathematics major with Junior or Senior standing and a cumulative GPA of at least 3.500. The faculty of the Department of Mathematical Sciences select the recipient based on the candidates’ academic abilities and contributions to the life of the Department.
Liz was very appreciative and had this to say:
I’m so honored to be awarded this scholarship and to be a part of such a wonderful community.
I’m incredibly grateful for the generosity of Professor Fredricks and for the continuous support from the Lewis & Clark math department. I truly appreciate the genuine compassion, encouragement, and of course patience of my professors. They promote kindness and passion amongst students, and I’m so thankful to be considered a part of this community. I’m still amazed by this recognition, and it aids my confidence and only enhances my eagerness to learn as I continue my studies.
