Wabash College student Scott Morrison is catching the attention of his academic community, having received three awards from the Crawfordsville school this spring.

A 2010 graduate of Andrean High School, Morrison received the Ruth Margaret Farber Award, given to the two top scoring English major in the junior class.

His work as an editor of "The Wabash Bachelor" earned him the Robert S. Harvey Award, recognizing his editing and layout skills.

“It was definitely a surprise. I had no idea that I could receive those honors, but it was great to receive such recognition from the faculty and staff,” Morrison said.

Morrison was also presented the Dean Stephens Award, given to a member of the junior class who best reflects the broad intellectual and personal interests of Dean Stephens, a member of the Wabash coaching staff who was killed in an airplane crash in 1958.

The son of Jim and Laura Morrison, of Merrillville, Scott Morrison is studying English and philosophy and is planning a career in print journalism or broadcasting, or marketing and public relations.

“My ideal career would be to become a sports broadcaster doing play-by-play for football or basketball. I love working around sports and to cover or write about them would be ideal,” he said.

Morrison is a member of the Wabash varsity golf team, having lettered three years at Andrean, and also a brother of Sigma Chi fraternity.

As a member of the Sphinx Club and Sons of Wabash, he helps to ensure campus traditions remain intact and works to connect the student body with school alumni.
