March 2 and 3 brought about the annual faculty book sale, which raised $5500 for the school and new scholarships.
Tony Crossland, coordinator of the faculty book sale, said “I attribute the success of the sale to all of the people who gave their time and efforts to help prepare and administer the sale. People were calling from Georgia and Pennsylvania wanting details about sale dates.”
Les Fout, Director of Gift Development, said that two to four scholarships will be going to students. The requirements for the scholarship are as follows:
1. Full-time student
2. 3.0 Grade Point Average
3. Second year student
4. University Parallel Program
5. Written recommendation by faculty member
Fout said that the scholarships are spilt up into three different areas. One scholarship is going to both business technology and engineering. Two scholarships are given to students with any other college major.
The deadline for the scholarships was on March 15, but students are allowed to fill out applications all year.
