Westminster College will host the 31st annual Wayne H. Christy Memorial Lecture on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in the Wallace Memorial Chapel. Eight-time All American swimmer and secondary school administrator Shauna Braun Zukowski '92 will speak on her experiences as an educator, administrator, wife, mother and survivor of a ruptured brain aneurysm. 

Zukowski began her career teaching math and coaching swimming in Virginia and at Kiski Area High School. After earning her Masters from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and her principal’s papers from Saint Francis University, she returned to Westminster College to earn her superintendent’s papers. Following, she was the administrator at Burrell High School, Highlands Middle School and Armstrong School District. 

Zukowski again continued her education and earned her Ph.D. from Robert Morris University in Instruction Management and Leadership. Amidst her educational initiatives, Zukowski married and mothered two children.

The Wayne H. Christy Memorial Lecture series honors the late Dr. Christy, who was a long-time faculty member and chair of the Department of Religion and Philosophy at Westminster College. As Dr. Christy dedicated his life to relating the heritage of faith to the emerging issues of a changing culture, the lecture series seeks out men and women who distinguish themselves by relating Christian faith to issues of contemporary life.

The event is free and open to the public. A reception, sponsored by the Office of Faith and Spirituality, will be held after the lecture.
