"Live Your Dream" & Chapter General Scholarship Award Recipient 2017

Congratulations to Alana Joseph of Columbia, MD on being our 2017 "Live Your Dream" & Chapter General Scholarship Award Recipient! Alana Joseph is a graduate of Oakland Mills High School with a 3.19 GPA. Miss Joseph will be attending our alma mater, the Fort Valley State University this Fall and will major in Veterinary Science & Technology. In Miss Joseph's essay, "Why is it important to give back to your community", one of her statements, "It is with great pride I can say that I have been accepted not only to FVSU but into the Veterinary Science and Technology program. With the support of this scholarship I will be one step closer of making my dream a reality. I choose to join the ranks of prosperous people who have paved the road for me to succeed and for that I thank all in my path that have and will assist me as I journey on the road to accomplishing my dream." Miss Joseph exudes the Wildcat Spirit that it is important we continue to give back to our community and our university. Miss Joseph is excited and PROUD to be a Wildcat and we are excited for her on making the best choice for her college education.

While many students dream of obtaining a college degree, life sometimes gets in the way–particularly for those dealing with personal responsibilities at home or in their communities. The “Live Your Dream” Scholarship Award, an initiative provided by alumna, Dr. Genevieve M. Knight, Ph.D. (Class of 1961), recognizes students who have overcome significant obstacles to pursue an education in Mathematics and Sciences. The scholars serve as positive role models and change the trajectories for their families, friends and their communities.

We would like to welcome Miss Joseph and family into our Wildcat Family!
