The University of West Georgia announces the formation of the Susan and Alex Roush Scholarship, an endowment to support students majoring in art. The scholarship will be awarded by a committee within the Department of Art. Alex Roush, of the UWG Foundation Board of Trustees, said he and his wife are excited to support the work of art students.

"We believe that a strong art department is essential to a multifaceted university and are proud to contribute to its foundation," he said. "We also provide this gift in honor of our family and friends who have spent much of their lives building the Art Department from its early roots."

Kevin Shunn, chairman of the department, expressed his gratitude for the endowment.

"The Susan and Alex Roush Scholarship will assist many art students for years to come in their development to become young professionals. We again are thankful for the Roush family's support, recognition and generosity."
