Two Commerce School third-year student-athletes, UVA Men’s Lacrosse midfielder Noah Chizmar and Women’s Track sprinter Marlee Morgan, were recently chosen as co-recipients of the esteemed T. Rodney Crowley Scholarship.

Chizmar and Morgan, standout students who have been recognized for demonstrating leadership, sportsmanship, character, and integrity, will both receive the equivalent of full in-state tuition for their fourth year at the University through the award.

A concentrator in Management who is completing the Leadership Minor, Chizmar has been named to the ACC Athletics Academic Honor Roll every semester he has been at UVA, as well as named a Preseason All-American by USA Lacrosse Magazine and Inside Lacrosse. The Baltimore, MD, native has been continually recognized for his community involvement both on Grounds and in Charlottesville and is a member of the Citizen Leader and Sports Ethics Community Impact Fellowship program, helping to support student-athletes with well-being. He also serves as an ambassador in Charlottesville with the Yellow Door Foundation, helping prepare apartments for children and families with life-threatening illnesses.

Morgan, whose story includes a long and determined road to the Women’s Track team, is concentrating in Marketing and Management at McIntire. An intern with the Commerce School’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging team, she lends her efforts to developing programs for students throughout the School. Highly regarded for her persistence and vision, Morgan’s tireless work as the Women’s Track team manager resulted in the creation of the annual Marlee Morgan Service Award by the University’s Department of Athletics. Recognizing her inspirational contributions to the team, the award in her name will honor those future student-managers who share her exemplary integrity and commitment.
