Lewis Scholarship in Business provides full funding

For the past four years, retired Bank of America CEO Ken Lewis has helped cultivate the next generation of business leaders through his participation in the Martha Guy Summer Institute (MGSI). Sharing career advice and recounting experiences are just a couple of the many ways Lewis is making a big impact on future business leaders.

Through a recent gift, Lewis helped establish the Lewis Scholarship in Business at Appalachian, which will provide one student a full scholarship to study in the Walker College and a second major scholarship to another, each renewable for four years.

Intended management major and Holly Springs, North Carolina, native Zoe Alexandra Chaplin is the first recipient of the Lewis Scholarship in Business, which will cover tuition and fees, room and board, and other expenses. The second scholarship has been awarded to Appalachian freshman Sean James, who plans to major in finance and banking.
