News that she had earned the Richard and Marilyn Myers Endowed Scholarship hit home

for Montoursville’s Judith Evans, as she is responsible for financing her own way through


The Myers scholarship will assist Evans, a French major with a political science minor,

in completing her senior year at Lycoming. “I chose Lycoming not only for the strong

academics, but also for the kind people who are on campus, and the people who support

the College. It always seemed to me to be a special school in that regard — a place where

people really care about each other — and the longer I am at Lycoming the more I see that

it is true.”

Evans maintains a superb academic record, and is a member of three honor societies,

Gamma Sigma Alpha, Phi Sigma Iota and Pi Sigma Alpha. She is also a member of the

Gamma Delta Sigma sorority, and serves as vice president of the Lycoming College

Republicans Club.

This summer, Evans worked as an associate in the regulatory affairs department at Aetna

in Harrisburg. “Working for a Fortune 50 company was a great experience, and I gained a

sound foundation in how managed health care works,” she recalled.

Last year, Evans took advantage of the opportunity to study abroad for a semester,

attending the Université Stendhal in Grenoble, France. The immersion into the French

language and culture opened her eyes to the potential of working internationally in the

future. “I fell in love with learning new languages and travel,” she recounted. “Because of

the experience, I decided that after college I will look into jobs abroad, either teaching

English or with a company that needs my particular set of skills.”
