Eastern students honored with scholarships for academic success
WILBURTON, OK (April 29, 2013) – Three Eastern Oklahoma State College students were recently recognized for their outstanding academic success with scholarships to continue their education.
Haley Cadle, a psychology/sociology major from Haileyville, and Allison Burns, an animal science major from Broken Bow, were named to the All-Oklahoma Academic Team. Cadle received a $1,600 scholarship to attend Northeastern State University and Burns received an $850 scholarship to attend Oklahoma State University next year.
Cadle was also named a 2013 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Bronze Scholar and will receive an additional $1,000 scholarship. Each year, community college students from across the nation compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze honors. An independent panel of judges considers outstanding academic rigor, grade point average, academic and leadership awards, and engagement in college and community service in the selection process. The program is sponsored by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation and is administered by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
In addition, Jeannette Gonzalez, a business administration major from Wilburton, was also honored with a $1,000 scholarship from the Oklahoma Association of Community Colleges. She is currently a freshman and plans to return to Eastern next fall.
All three students were recognized at a special luncheon by the Oklahoma Association of Community Colleges at Rose State College.
