Three BC Students Awarded 2012 Durna Endowed Scholarships


Three Bridgewater College seniors who achieved superior academic standards and good campus citizenship have been selected as recipients of the John W. and Lurene M. Durna Endowed Scholarship, awarded to those who intend to pursue a career in law.

Receiving the $4,500 scholarship were Katelyn Nolt, a history major and the daughter of James and Melissa Nolt of Manheim, Pa., and Milena Radovic, a history and political science major and the daughter of Zdravko and Rada Radovic of Virginia Beach, Va.

Ryan Speray, a history and political science major and the son of Melissa and Alan Harris of Gloucester, Va., also was named a Durna Scholar.

Nolt, Radovic and Speray will receive a plaque from interim BC President Roy W. Ferguson Jr., and will be recognized with a nameplate on the "Durna Scholar of the Year" plaque in the College's Kline Campus Center.

The scholarship memorializes the affection that John W. Durna (Class of 1939) and Lurene M. Hartman Durna (Class of 1940) had for their alma mater. The scholarship is limited to full-time students and is awarded for one year.
