Gettysburg College has a long tradition of recognizing students for outstanding scholarship and achievement. Awards, made possible by the generous gifts of alumni and friends, were presented at a Fall Honors Program on October 26, 2012.
More than 40 named awards were presented to students who were selected on the basis of their academic achievement and service to the campus community. Bradley Wiseman, of Newtown Square, received the Margaret E. Fisher Memorial Award at the College's Fall Honors Day ceremonies.
Created by Dr. Nelson F. Fisher ’18 in memory of his mother, the Margaret E. Fisher Memorial Award is to be awarded to a male student who excels in one or more varsity sports and who achieves the highest academic average among winners of varsity letters.
With a student body of approximately 2,600, Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park. The College was founded in 1832.
