Elizabeth Gallen is the winner of the Kenneth E. Himes Endowed Scholarship for 2015. “I

am honored. This scholarship will be an enormous help to me,” said Gallen.

Majoring in corporate communications with a dual minor in human services and music,

Gallen plans to graduate in the spring of 2017. A member and officer of all three Lycoming

choirs, which perform a challenging repertoire of pieces locally and afar, Gallen won the

Lycoming College Butler Choir Award in April.

As part of her Romantic German Music and Literature course last spring, Gallen traveled

with her classmates to visit Mozart’s Salzburg, Schoenberg’s Vienna and the J.S. Bach

Museum in Leipzig, Germany. “Lycoming College is a wonderful fit for me. Not only are

the professors outstanding at what they do, the trip is a prime example of the many

opportunities the College provides students to grow and learn.”

When not studying or touring with the choir, Gallen stays active on campus with a full

slate of activities. She is a member of the Lycoming Buddies Club, which fosters one-to-

one friendships with members of the Lycoming community with intellectual disabilities.

“Lycoming Buddies has been a fantastic way to become more involved in the greater

Williamsport community. By joining the group, I have met many amazing people — both

the buddies and the Lycoming students,” she said. In addition, Gallen is a member of the

Student Senate, Dance Club, and LEAF Environmental Club.

“Lycoming College has provided me with an exceptional learning environment, a very

exciting social life and a home away from home,” she said.
