Fall 2012 Recipient
From Lindsay Harts (12/12):
"Members of the Staff Senate,
It was a joy to meet you all over the summer! I just wanted to give you a quick 'thank you' once again for considering and choosing me as the recipient for the staff senate scholarship. Already after being here for only a month, I am amazed by the kindness, knowledge, and professionalism of the UNCW staff that I have been in contact with. I have high hopes for my freshman year along with my entire college career. There's so many thing about UNCW that I loved before even becoming a student, but now I am grateful for all of the things that have come to be my 'new normal.' This scholarship is certainly a blessing to my family and will help me to achieve my goal of becoming a high school science teacher."
Thanks once again!
