Dr. Steve Lerch Family Scholarship

Scholarship Information

His daughter Rebecca is a 2000 RU graduate with a BS in Dance, and his daughter Courtney is a 2008 RU graduate with a BS in Criminal Justice. Dr. Lerch’s colleagues created this scholarship upon his retirement to recognize him and his wife, Eileen.
