"Live Your Dream" Scholarship Award Recipient 2017

Congratulations to Mekali Felton of Capitol Heights, MD on being our 2017 "Live Your Dream" Scholarship Recipient! Mekali Felton is a graduate of Suitland High School with a 3.52 GPA. Miss Felton will be attending our alma mater, the Fort Valley State University this Fall and will major in Animal Science with a Pre-Vet Medicine. In Miss Felton's essay, "Why is it important to give back to your community", one of her statements, "I hope that by giving back to the community I can give them a way to have fun without doing things that will lead to a troubled future and help them focus on the important things in life." Miss Felton exudes the Wildcat Spirit that it is important we continue to give back to our community and our university. Miss Felton is excited 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 Felton and family into our Wildcat Family!
