catherine-;athamThis scholarship was created in honor of Dr. Edward J. Pappas, chair of the Department of Communication from 1973-1990 and Eunice Pappas, Ed's wife and long-time employee of Wayne State University.

"I am beyond honored and grateful to be the recipient of the Eunice and Ed J. Pappas Endowed Scholarship for Excellence in Communication. Receiving this scholarship will help greatly in relieving the financial obligation of my senior year at Wayne State. As a public relations major and political science minor, I hope to obtain an additional internship during the academic year that relates to event planning or a political campaign. I am also the newly elected president of Wayne State's Campus Activities Team and couldn't be more thrilled to carry out this position during my final year at Wayne State. I am so grateful and proud to be a Warrior and couldn't have chosen a better university to complete my higher education."
