Posted: July 11, 2011

The “Lyle A. Williams Memorial Trustee Scholarship” recently was created by Linda R. Williams in honor of her late husband, Lyle Alvin Williams. Lyle graduated from Penn State in 1965 with a degree in Agricultural Sciences, specializing in Animal Industry. Upon graduation, Lyle joined the Navy as an executive officer and served on several USS vessels. His professional career spanned 30 years in the aluminum industry, until his retirement in 2009. Lyle was a loyal Penn Stater.

This scholarship will provide financial assistance to undergraduate students enrolled or planning to enroll in the College of Agricultural Sciences who have a demonstrated need for funds to meet necessary college expenses.
