Margaret Lapsanski ’06 (Lincroft, N.J.) is one of 30 students with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) selected to receive a college scholarship funded by Solvay Pharmaceuticals this school year. The scholarship includes $2,000 per year for up to two years of study and a year’s supply of medical products.

“A good attitude goes a long way; I truly believe that having a good attitude is half the battle with CF,” she says.

The economics and business major credits students and faculty at Lafayette for providing her with a “great support system.”

“The relationships I have made at this school are very important to me and I highly value them,” Lapsanski notes.

After graduation she plans to travel abroad before moving to New York and beginning her career.

Lapsanski has been named to the Dean’s List and is conducting research entitled “The Erosion of the Community Bank’s Loan Market—1990-2005.” She served as an intern for Verizon Wireless and Smith Barney and was a teaching assistant in the economics and business department. She is a member of Delta Gamma sorority, which she has served as vice president of finance and vice president of programming. Lapsanski is also a speaker for organ donation awareness.

Now in its 13th year, the CREON® Family Scholarship is awarded to students based on academic achievement, financial need, leadership qualities, and the ability to serve as a role model to others with CF.
