The 2017-18 scholars were honored at our annual Scholars’ Reception in September. Scholars and parents were invited to meet WCF trustees, donors, and Bevill State employees. New and returning students were recognized by Board of Trustees Chairman William “Bud” Long in a short presentation. In addition, BSCC Interim President Dr. Kim Ennis took a moment to welcome the attendees to Bevill State and offer her support to the students and their families.
38 students are attending Bevill State on full tuition and fee scholarships for the 2017-18 year. To keep their scholarships, students are required to maintain a 2.75 GPA and are asked to participate in at least one community service project each year. In addition, the scholars attend a monthly lunch meeting, are assigned a returning-scholar mentor, have a special place to study, and are offered visits to transfer colleges.
