Math Scholarship Established at Shawnee State University
Shawnee State University Associate Professor John J.
Whitaker, Ph.D., has established a new scholarship for math
students, the Ferguson-Hamilton-Knox Math Scholarship.
scholarship is in honor of retired Professor Orville
Ferguson and Professor Virginia Hamilton for their
dedication to students, service to the university, and
positive influence on their colleagues.
The fund also
recognizes Cheryl Knox, a Shawnee State University alumna,
whose record of excellence in the classroom and other
contributions to the department serves as a positive model
for student achievement. The scholarship will be awarded
each year to a Shawnee State student who demonstrates
scholarly success in a math field and contributes
substantially to the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
