Waynesburg University has named Lilly Ryer as a recipient of its Christian Life Scholarship for 2022.

The daughter of Joseph and Mary Ryer, she comes from Indiana, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Marion Center High School.

At Marion Center, she was captain of the track and field, cross country and swim teams. She was a PIAA Team State Champion for cross country in 2018 and won several accolades for her performance in track and field.

She also served as student class president during her junior and senior years.

Ryer will major in secondary education (biology) at Waynesburg University and plans to participate on the Yellow Jackets’ cross country and track and field teams.

“I am very grateful that I was selected for this scholarship because it will help me grow my faith in Jesus as well as help my academic career,” Ryer said.

About the Scholarship

The Waynesburg Christian Life Scholarship recognizes students who have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and who are involved in the life of a local church as they grow in faith. The scholarship is available to first-year freshmen and provides $4,000 over four years.

Scholarship recipients are also provided with activities, conversations and mentorship through the office of the University Chaplin and the Center for Campus Ministry.

Each recipient is assigned a Christian mentor from their anticipated field, discipline or major so that they can grow in their Christian faith while also developing leadership qualities at Waynesburg University.
