MANSFIELD, PA – With the bang of his gavel to bring the July 27 Mansfield University Council of Trustees’ meeting to a close, Lew Lee, Thompson PA, brought his ten-year tenure as chair to an end.
Pictured (l-r) are Ralph Meyer presenting Lew Lee with the resolution honoring him at his last meeting as Council of Trustees Chair as Lee's granddaughter, Kaitlyn Flannagan and his wife, Linda look on.
Earlier in the meeting, to his surprise, Lee’s fellow trustees presented him with a resolution thanking him for his leadership, dedication and loyalty to Mansfield University.
The resolution concluded, “Therefore be it resolved on this 27th day of July 2006 that the Council of Trustees hereby expresses on behalf of the entire Mansfield campus community, its sincere appreciation to Mr. Lewis Lee for his exemplary service and numerous contributions to Mansfield University and look forward to his continued service as a member of the Mansfield University Council of Trustees.”
“It has been an honor to serve as chair the past ten years,” Lee said. “My primary interest has always been our students. It truly has been an honor to serve with all of you, knowing that all of our interests are of the students.”

On September 30, the Community Foundation of Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties will award over seven full- and part-time scholarships for End of Day (EOD) students at both Blue Ridge and Elk Lake Elementary Schools. Applications will be available by July 15 and accepted at End of Day and the Community Foundation from August 15-September 30. Families earning less than $50,000 annually are eligible.
EOD strives to provide quality after school care for children and families, regardless of financial circumstances. School aged children have different needs and abilities than the traditional day care can provide for. EOD provides opportunities for children to interact with peers, receive additional academic support and engage in educational and developmental activities.
EOD is open every full day that school is in session, which is about 175-180 days per year. With daily tuition at $8/day, a full scholarship (5 days a week) is $1,440. Partial scholarships are also available in varying amounts, depending on family needs. EOD allows for a variety of enrollment options including every day, a few days a week or even occasionally as needed.
This opportunity is another way the Community Foundation and the United Way of Susquehanna County are improving options for children and families in our area. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, please contact Brandy Pitcher at 879–4904.
