ASU Students Receive Endowment Scholarships
January 30, 2013
The scholarships were awarded after the committee reviewed student applications, and were based on scholastic achievement, campus and community involvement and leadership, and financial need.
Students receiving the scholarships, listed with their academic majors, are Ashlee Woods, curriculum and instruction; Brianne Wilburn, communication; Blake Hamblin, management; Hector Romo, student development and leadership; Binhong Lin, biochemistry; Cameron Simon, management information systems; Sean Motl, psychology; Mary Halcomb, industrial organizational psychology; and John Frankhouser, kinesiology-exercise science.

Average grade point average (GPA) for the spring 2013 recipients is a 3.879. Of the 21 recipients, 20 had a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, and seven had a 4.0 cumulative GPA.
The Student Endowment Committee is chaired by Bradley Petty, executive director of student affairs, and includes Dr. Alaric Williams, faculty representative; Crystal Braden, staff representative; and James Morris, student representative. The scholarship fund was set up in 2000 after an ASU Student Senate referendum passed to fund the scholarship with now-discontinued student fees until it reached a target balance of $500,000, which the committee strives to maintain. Scholarships have been awarded since the spring 2004 semester.
