Ashlee-Hull"Through information shared by one of my business professors, I applied for and received this scholarship which has been a huge blessing to me and my family. I can now focus on my classes instead of worrying about work hours to help pay for my tuition and books. I also have time to explore other opportunities on campus, like volunteering as a mentor through and outreach program at a local elementary school, and remaining active in the student chapter of the American Marketing Association. I can also continue to get first-hand experience in my major working with the University Career Center's marketing team, a job I held during the summer."
