The Charles “Bud” Hagan Scholarship
A highly respected professor, athletic director, dean, registrar and admired coach and mentor at Westfield State, Bud Hagan left a lasting impression on the students whose lives he touched. As evidence of Bud’s lasting impact, the Westfield State University yearbook was dedicated in his honor in 1990. In recognition of Bud’s significance at the University in developing the athletic program and becoming its first athletic director, Bud was inducted into the WSU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2000. Soon after, the Athletics Hall of Fame became known as, The Charles “Bud” Hagan Athletics Hall of Fame, in 2006 and in April 2013, Westfield State University named the baseball field, The Bud and Jim Hagan Field. This scholarship honors Bud’s memory as well as, his dedication and love for Westfield State.
