C-SC names two Vision scholars
Wednesday, February 13, 2008
CANTON, Mo. – Culver-Stockton College has awarded its highest scholarship to two students who will begin their freshman year at the college in Fall 2008. To qualify for the full-tuition scholarship, students must have earned at least a 32 on their ACT test and maintained a minimum high school grade point average of 3.6.
The Vision of Success scholarship is based solely on a student’s academic excellence and promise. It does not require additional competition or interviewing to be awarded.
“We believe that students who have already achieved outstanding academic success should be recognized at this top level,” said William L. Fox, president of the college. “We not only recognize their accomplishments and potential, but we challenge them as well – to become campus leaders while discovering the depth of the Culver-Stockton experience ahead of them. They can set an example for all our students and strengthen the academic interaction that leads to a superb education.”
The 2008 recipients of the Vision of Success scholarship are: Erin Carmody, daughter of Martin and Kathryn Carmody of Webster Groves, Mo., who will graduate from Webster Groves High School; and Alexander Kaizer, daughter of Edward and Lynn Kaizer of Ames, Iowa, who will graduate from Gilbert Junior-Senior High School. Carmody is planning to major in theatre at Culver-Stockton, and Kaizer has declared a history major.
The Vision of Success scholarship can be automatically renewed each year, at the value of the student’s freshman year tuition, if the student maintains a 3.2 average while retaining full-time status at Culver-Stockton.
“We are excited to have these outstanding individuals as future Culver-Stockton students,” said Melik Peter Khoury, vice president for enrollment management and college marketing. “We look forward to rewarding more students with this honor and bringing them to Culver-Stockton where they can continue to be successful.”
