Student scholars greet commencement morning
Posted: May 13th, 2009
PHIL HART SCHOLARS – This year's class of Lake Superior State University Philip A. Hart Scholars garner recognition during a morning breakfast before commencement on May 2 in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Phil Hart served Michigan in the U.S. Senate between 1958 and 1976. For Senator Hart, politics was also the noble art of governing, and governing was about building a better future for our children and our children's children. He earned the title of "conscience of the Senate" from colleagues due to the way he conducted politics. Since inception in 1977, more than 130 Hart scholarships have been awarded to LSSU students who have gone on to become doctors, teachers, engineers, nurses and executives in the world of business.
