The Geraldine and Sam Dell Scholarship for Excellence and Character in the Sciences was established in 2012 by Sam and Geraldine Dell, in order to recognize and encourage science and math students in the School of the Sciences. Each year, a rising senior in the School of the Sciences is selected for the Dell Scholarship. The student chosen is one who consistently achieves excellence through a strong work ethic and sense of integrity, demonstrates an exceptional ability to work in teams and contributes to the personal and professional development of team members, and shows an appreciation for cultural diversity. Congratulations to junior chemistry major Blake Ford, who was honored as the 2016-17 Dell Scholarship recipient at the annual Dell Lecture. Blake is shown above with SU President, Dr. Kevin Manning, and Mr. Sam Dell.
