Celebration of Scholarship

U.S. Representative Bill Foster
April 20, 2017
Discovering your Pathway to Excellence

The theme for this year’s Celebration of Scholarship reflects an ongoing opportunity for members of the Lewis University community to search for the intersection of meaning and purpose with their academic pursuits.  Through concurrent, poster and creative works presentations, students and faculty from across the University will have the opportunity to share their scholarship.

This year’s keynote presenter is U.S. Representative Bill Foster [D-IL] 11th Congressional District. Congressman Foster is a scientist and businessman representing the 11th Congressional District of Illinois. He began his business career at age 19 when he co-founded Electronic Theater Controls, Inc. with his younger brother. He subsequently pursued his scientific career as a high-energy physicist and particle accelerator designer at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) before he transitioned into public service as the Representative of the Illinois 14th Congressional District in 2008. He currently serves on the House Committee on Financial Services, and the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
