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. The Dr. Raymond Lee Worsham Scholarship was established in 2011 to provide $1,000 of financial assistance for tuition and books ($500 in the fall and $500 in the spring) to one undergraduate or graduate (non-GA) Campus Rec student employee each year who upholds the values of the department in his or her work.
