Lee (LeClaire) B. Watts Endowed Scholarship

The Lee (LeClaire) B. Watts Endowed Scholarship was started in 2010 by Dr. Steve A. Watts, Jr., in memory of his beloved wife, Dr. Lee B. Watts, who died in December 2009. Lee taught Spanish and Spanish Literature and headed Eastern’s Classical & Modern Languages Department for many years. She was credited with developing the Spanish major and internship program and founded the Nu Chi Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the Spanish honors society, before retiring in 1995. Lee’s dedication and passion for teaching and new methodologies gained the respect of her colleagues and students alike and in recognition the World Languages and Cultures suite was named in perpetuity in her honor. Recipients of the Lee B. Watts Scholarship will be students who have a sincere interest in Spanish and Spanish Literature and are in good academic standing.

Students are encouraged to file the FAFSA by March 1
