Scholar Spotlight with Justin Collins
During this final week of classes for the 2019-2020 year, our Scholar Spotlight shines on senior Justin Collins, an accounting major from Charles Town, WV. Justin is a recipient of the Carl K. Rauch and Susan Besaw Rauch Endowed Scholarship for Business for the past two years.
Alumnus Carl K. Rauch ’58 achieved a lifetime of accomplishments as a scholar, professor, and philanthropist. A former math professor at Shepherd, Carl’s legacy at the university includes several student scholarships established across multiple disciplines, including the Carl K. Rauch and Susan Besaw Rauch Endowed Scholarship for Business. The award honors Carl’s former wife, who is a retired assistant professor of accounting at Shippensburg University.
“Being awarded the Carl K. Rauch and Susan Besaw Rauch Scholarship has taken a weight off my shoulders and allowed me to focus my efforts on learning,” said Justin. “Receiving this award was an encouraging reminder that my hard work throughout college was paying off.”
Good luck to all of our Foundation scholars as they head into final exams!
