Christ Academy senior Abby Jones is the fourth recipient of five full-ride scholarships from Midwestern State.
It is a $7,000 annual scholarship that is renewable for four years if you meet the requirements like a 3.5 GPA, community service, honors project and attend some conferences.
“We make a lot about people’s signing days for sports and things of that nature,” Midwestern State University associate professor Steve Garrison said. “We have all of our sports teams and so on but in the big scheme of things these are the kids running our society are going to solve our big problems. We should reward and celebrate that.”
There is still one more scholarship to give out and Garrison said an offer has been made to a student, but if it is turned down they will find another to receive this honor.
