For Katherine Redman, recipient of the Jane Castner Derr Henninger Endowed

Scholarship, the award could not have been more timely. Family financial challenges put

Redman’s continued attendance at Lycoming in jeopardy. “This scholarship means a lot

to me and my family, and will enable me to complete my last year. It has been vital,”

Redman said.

Redman, who grew up in the small Finger Lakes hamlet of Newfield, New York, was

drawn by the warmth and academic variety that Lycoming offers. “I knew I wanted to go

to a smaller college. After touring a number of colleges, I found the liberal arts focus at

Lycoming to be impressive. Everyone at Lycoming was so welcoming that I couldn’t see

going anywhere else.”

Redman, a major in business administration with a marketing track, is aware of the tough

employment scenario she’ll face when she graduates in the spring, and she is taking

steps to cultivate a diverse portfolio of talents. “Corporate communications is a minor

that overlaps with my business major, and something that will give me an edge in the job

market,” she explained. If things go her way, though, she will be the one doing the hiring

eventually. “My dream is to be a CEO. I will work as hard as I must, and will not stop until I

get there.”

On campus, Redman is an enthusiastic volunteer with the Campus Activities Board,

creating and working on events to benefit her fellow students. “In my first year, I

participated in activities where I met friends I still have today. I love that Lycoming offers

so many options for students. The variety ensures there is something for everyone, and no

one feels left out.”
