Lee University student J. J. Williamson was the recipient of the 2012 Crosby Scholarship presented by Lee University President Dr. Paul Conn on Oct 31 during chapel service.
The Crosby Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Dr. Henry Crosby, a close friend of Dr. and Darlia Conn.
Faculty members nominate a young man entering his junior year for the scholarship. The award recipient is then chosen from the nominations by a scholarship committee.
“I am honored to be the recipient of the Crosby Scholarship,” Williamson said. “It is moments like this where I cannot help but thank God for providing the means for me to fulfill the calling I believe He has placed on my life here at Lee University.”
A church music major from Marietta, Ga., Williamson has been heavily involved in many on-campus clubs and activities, including Voices of Lee.
“J. J. is an outstanding, responsible student with a great heart for ministry and tremendous ability to overcome obstacles, “ Voices of Lee Director Danny Murray said. “We are thrilled he is a member of Voices of Lee.”
