Named in honor of longtime faculty member, Patrick F. Earey, this award signifies exemplary leadership, academic achievement and extracurricular involvement by a senior exercise and sport science major. Dr. Earey, a professor from 1957-1987, taught health education and safety courses and served as varsity swim coach from 1957-1975. Dr. Earey passed away in 2005.
