Aisha Lake-Mahon Receives Reginald F. Lewis Scholarship
Aisha Natasha Jamila Lake-Mahon
WASHINGTON (June 4, 2012) – In May, Aisha Natasha Jamila Lake-Mahon received a Bachelor of Science in Philosophy from the College of Arts and Sciences and was awarded the competitive Reginald F. Lewis Scholar Prize. The $2,500 prize is awarded to the undergraduate student whose cumulative grade point average demonstrates the highest increase between the sophomore and senior years.

A native of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Lake-Mahon arrived at Howard University ready to grow and develop into a woman who would make a real difference in the world. She credits her success and ability to maintain focus to her involvement in religious campus life activities. She balanced her studies with her work with the Beacon Liturgical Dance Team, the Alpha to Omega Steppers for Christ and the Howard University Community Choir.

Driven by her passion for debate, her interest in understanding different opinions, and her love for helping others, Lake-Mahon intends to continue her academic pursuits by attending Florida Coastal School of Law and ultimately practicing family law.

In 1990, the Reginald F. Lewis Foundation, Inc. established the Howard University Reginald F. Lewis Fund to support various student and faculty enrichment academic activities. A cornerstone of the innovative initiative is the Reginald F. Lewis Scholar Prize. The University President bestows the award during the Commencement exercise to a graduating senior, selected from the University’s undergraduate population, whose record reflects the highest degree of academic progress.
