A+ Scholarship Award 2012:

This year’s A+ Scholarship for the Department of Languages and Literature was awarded to Kelia Dufrene.  Kelia graduated from John Curtis High School in May 2012 with a 3.5 gpa, and is currently majoring in English Education. The A+ Scholarship amounts to $250/semester for four semesters. This year, the department raised enough money that, for the fall 2013 scholarship drive, we will award two scholarships.
