Billy Harris '74 Scholarship

The scholarship commemorates Billy Harris, a 1974 graduate and former director of alumni affairs and sports information and son of Bucky and Lorraine Harris. The Billy Harris Scholarship is awarded to students who excel in leadership, academics and athletics - all areas of importance in Billy’s life.

In 1986, Billy succumbed to a courageous battle with leukemia. His parents initiated the scholarship fund the very next year in honor of him.
