Thank so very much for selecting me for one of the MSSA scholarship recipients. I am extremely grateful for this offer and look forward to this coming school year!

I will be returning to Lipscomb University as a junior working towards my bachelor’s degree as a Marketing major, with an emphasis on Social Media, and Internet Marketing. While attending Lipscomb full-time, I also work two part-time jobs that total 30+ hours or more weekly which helps to pay tuition fees. It is not always easy to juggle commuting, work, and school; therefore, I am truly grateful for the assistance that I am receiving. This scholarship allows me a moment to relax and not worry about all the rising fees that come with attending a university. It helps to ensure that my dream of higher education is possible. Thank you once again, Mid-South Sign Association, for enabling me to continue attending college – a dream come true for my family and me!
