April 09, 2018 Eighty high school students from across the U.S.—all top scholars—wrote essays, prepared a portfolio, and submitted a video for the 15th annual Father Michael Scanlan, TOR, Scholarship Competition. This year’s winners are Andrew Lyons, a resident of Gaffney, South Carolina, who attends St. Joseph Catholic High School, and Nathan Ware, a resident of Westerville, Ohio, who attends Westerville South High School. Lyons is actively involved in a variety of sports and is captain of his school’s varsity football team. He plans to study biology on a pre-medicine track. Ware, a cross country and track runner and French horn player, plans to enter the Honors Program and is interested in studying theology, philosophy, or business. Each student will receive a four-year full-tuition academic scholarship for their undergraduate studies at Franciscan University. The scholarship is named in honor of Father Scanlan, who served as president of Franciscan University for 26 years and was instrumental in revitalizing the Catholic identity of the school.
