Pam Evans Smith Scholars Named For 2009-2010
The legacy of the late Pam Evans Smith ’82 continues through the scholarship founded in her name. In 2009-10, the Pam Evans Smith ’82 Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Danielle Remington ’10 and Stephanie Boardman ’10.
Given annually to deserving female seniors who have shown excellence in leadership and academic achievement throughout their careers at Wittenberg, the scholarship honors Smith’s dedicated service to Wittenberg – including a 21-year basketball coaching career in which she led the Tigers toeight NCAA Division III Tournament
appearances and 11 North Coast Athletic Conference regular season championships. A seven-time NCAC Coach of the Year, Smith was an inspiration to students, especially as she battled cancer for more than 15 years. Remington and Boardman excel in different areas of athletics at Wittenberg, and the selection committee determined that both embody the spirit of the award.
Remington is a member of the university’s sports medicine staff, and she is involved in numerous other campus activities, including the Emerging Leaders Program and several honor societies.
Boardman was a first-team All-NCAC honoree in basketball in 2008-09, is an active volunteer and a member of two honor societies. Both Remington and Boardman are biology majors planning to pursue graduate degrees after Wittenberg. Remington plans to pursue a career in optometry, while Boardman hopes for a career in the medical field.
“I want to say thanks to everyonewho has supported the Pam Evans Smith ’82 Memorial Scholarship Fund, and I hope they will continue to make contributions in the future,” said Pam’s husband, Roger Smith, who continues to raise money for the scholarships through various activities and events. “Every gift, no matter how small, honors Pam’s memory and makes a difference in the lives of Wittenberg students.”
