The J. Thomas Lundy Leadership in Public Service Scholarship

History

Tom Lundy ’71 retired in September 2016 after 44 years serving Catawba County, North Carolina – 37 as county manager. At his retirement celebration, friends, family, and colleagues surprised Lundy with the establishment of a scholarship in his name believing the scholarship would be a way to encourage, invest, and support future public service leaders and our communities.

This scholarship honors the enduring tradition of developing public service leaders by supporting students who intend to enter or are currently pursuing a career in local government.

Recipient

This scholarship is awarded to an academically outstanding MPA student with a demonstrated desire to pursue a career in local government.
