Second Recipient of the Paul and Jennefer Clifford Walk-On Scholarship Named

Congratulations to Seth Chamberlain, Bloomsburg University Swimmer who was named as the second recipient of the Paul and Jennefer Clifford Walk-On Scholarship.

Seth learned about the scholarship last week when he was asked to come to coach Stu Marvin's offices for a quick chat after his afternoon class. Much to his surprise, coach Marvin (and Roongo) had some exciting news for him! Check out the video below:

About the Donors

Paul Clifford and his wife Jennefer, both members of BU graduating class of ’96 wanted to make a gift that would benefit walk-on athletes. Paul and Jennefer walked on to the Football and Swim teams respectively when they arrived as freshmen at BU.

According to Paul and Jennefer, creating this scholarship allowed them to do just that while also seeing the immediate impact of their gift. “Our goal was to make a gift that could foster an experience for other student-athletes that is similar to what we had," Paul Clifford said. "The value of that experience and the confidence it instilled in us is a big reason why we are happy to be able to give back in this small way."
