Jerb Miller Scholarships Given to 56 Westminster College Students

Fifty-six Westminster College freshmen were awarded $36,000 Jerb Miller Scholarships.

 "This is a unique opportunity for alumni to support their alma mater," said Mary James, a 1986 Westminster graduate and director of alumni affairs and Westminster College.  "Alumni have experienced a Westminster education and understand how valuable it is.  As educators, they know students who will thrive in and contribute to the Westminster community."

 Westminster College alumni who are educators have the opportunity to nominate a deserving student for a Jerb Miller Scholarship.  The Jerb Miller Scholarships are four-year $40,000 renewable awards at $10,000 per year.  The scholarships are created in honor of Dr. Jerb Miller, a beloved professor of education at Westminster from 1968 until his death in 1992. 

 Westminster alumni who are in the education field have been asked to identify a highly qualified high school student who has the personal characteristics that would honor Westminster.  Students with a 3.5 or higher grade point average may select from any of Westminster's 40 majors.  Westminster will grant the scholarship upon endorsements of Westminster alumni educators and formal validation of the student's credentials.

 For more information, contact James at (724) 946-7363 or e-mail

Nominations for the 2005-2006 scholarships are due by Oct. 31.  Visit for more information about the Jerb Miller Scholarship Program.

Theatre Westminster Presents "Dancing at Lughnasa"

The cast and crew of Theatre Westminster presents "Dancing at Lughnasa" Thursday to Saturday, April 28-30, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 1, at 2:30 p.m. in Beeghly Theater.

"This is a story of the Mundy sisters, living in rural Donegal County Ireland in 1936," said Eileen Hendrickson, director and visiting instructor of theatre.  "The play explores the plight and joys of being a woman in Ireland at this time."

Hendrickson describes the plot as a young boy telling the story of growing up in a fatherless home with his unmarried mother and four spinster aunts in 1930s Ireland.  Each of the five women, different from the other in temperament and capability, is the emotional support system, although at times reluctantly, for each other, with the eldest assuming the role of a somewhat meddling' overseer.  But then into this comes an elderly brother, a priest too senile to perform his clerical functions, who has come home to die' after a lifetime in Africa; as well, there also arrives the boy's father, riding up on a motorcycle, only to announce that he's on his way to Spain to fight against Franco.  Nevertheless, life goes on for the five sisters, although undeniably affected by the presence of the two men, they continue to cope as a close-knit unit, until something happens that disrupts the very fabric of that cohesiveness beyond repair.

Tickets can be obtained by calling the box office at (724) 946-7241.

Contact Hendrickson at (724) 946-7237 or e-mail for more information.
