SCHOLAR Day is Mount Union's Student Celebration Honoring Our Latest Academic Research. Students and faculty set aside an entire day to learn from students on our campus who have completed outstanding research projects. This event is celebrated by our students; faculty, staff, and administrators; alumni, and the greater community. SCHOLAR Day will be held on Tuesday, April 23, 2024. Student presentations at SCHOLAR Day fall into two categories, formal and poster presentations.
SCHOLAR Day has been generously supported since its inception through a charitable gift from George ’58 and Sally (Shrake ’59) Stradley of Hartville, OH. The Stradleys, whose generous support of SCHOLAR Day has contributed to its overwhelming success, have once again decided to make academic excellence at Mount Union a priority through their gift. George is retired as president of Beifuss & Stradley, Inc. and is a trustee emeritus of Mount Union. He has been providing leadership as a member of the Board since 1982. During their student days on campus, George was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity and president of his senior class. Sally was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority and a writer for The Dynamo.
Also on Tuesday, April 23, the University will host Honors Convocation to honor this year’s award recipients. In addition, the recipients of the Great Teacher Award and Outstanding Senior Awards, as well as an announcement regarding the Class of 2024 Gift, will be made.
