Waynesburg University recently announced the recipients of the Charles “Chuck” Lewis Scholarship, given by Charles R. and Ada G. Lewis of Highland Avenue in Gettysburg. Cody Catalina, a senior history (secondary education) major from Brownsville, Pa., and Chelsea Heckman, an early childhood education major from Greenville, Pa., were named the recipients for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Lewis, a 1949 Waynesburg University graduate, received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish with a minor in mathematics. As a student at Waynesburg University, he was involved in wrestling and tennis, among many other activities. Recognizing the importance of education, Lewis felt compelled to contribute to education through students attending his alma mater.

“I always enjoy hearing about the students who are selected for my scholarship,” said Lewis. “Waynesburg is my hometown, so it seems natural that I would wish to further its success.”
