Maureen, is truly a person with high potential, I was impressed with her 2015 induction into the National Honor Society. It enlightens my heart to see young people who climb the rough side of the mountain by going to a two-year college and getting an associate degree. I was happy to see her career goals are to continue her education and pursue a four-year degree. She chose Speech Language Pathologist because she wanted to “encourage people with disabilities to focus on their abilities and not their disabilities.” When I later read that, she herself was a person with a disability, made her statement even more powerful. I cannot wait to see how her story ends. I highly recommend we support Maureen to the maximum we can from our family scholarship fund.
Maureen has overcome some significant obstacles and has not let any disabilities delay or derail her academic achievements. During her senior year she took high school and college credits and is now attending college full-time and able to pursue her dreams. Her grandmother (Lula Mason) and great-grandmother (Lula Bogan) would be so proud to see her receive the Shurn Scholarship Award. I 100% support her receipt of the MAX scholarship.
I fully support giving scholarship but I have question with the award of the national honor society why is she presently going to a two year school
Can we get a clear answer to this concern
Our award criteria does not penalize a student for attend a Associate Degree program. Students who are enrolled in other trade programs are qualified as well. The awards submitted by students is completely optional.
I fully support Maureen receiving our Shurn family Scholarship. Maureen apparently has overcome some significant challenges which are to be recognized and commended. I agree that she should not be penalized for attending an Associate Degree program in Advance of pursuing her Bachelor Degree as this is not a requirement. We want to encourage all of our young people to continue to pursue their educational desires and we should give them or full support whether it be trade school or University Level class work.
