About Dr. Worsham
Dr. Raymond “Ray” Worsham served as the director of SFA’s intramural program for 43 years. During his tenure, the program saw high involvement, and thousands of students spent nights playing on the intramural fields, in the HPE Complex and around campus. To celebrate his dedication to the department and lasting impact, the scholarship was created.
Academic scholarship for Campus Rec employees
The Campus Recreation Department created the Dr. Raymond Lee Worsham Endowed Scholarship to provide financial assistance to current student employees of Campus Rec.
