Criminal Justice Department Announces Recipients of Mini-Scholarship Awards

The JSU Criminal Justice Department has announced the award of eight $500 “mini-scholarships” to a select group of criminal justice majors and graduate students. The scholarships are awarded to encourage these students to attend May and Summer Session 2008 classes. The six undergraduates and two graduate students were nominated by criminal justice faculty members, and the awards were confirmed by the department as a whole after the students’ past academic performance, character, motivation and potential were reviewed by a department committee.

The award recipients are Alan K. Appley of Cedartown, Georgia; Candiace Brown of Heflin, Alabama; Celia Engle of Pinson, Alabama; Michael Hardy of Lawrenceville, Georgia; Lorinda Mitchell of Munford, Alabama; Kacy Niven of Rainsville, Alabama; Amanda Nwosu of Harvest, Alabama; and Gary Price of Anniston, Alabama. Lorinda Mitchell and Kacy Niven are graduate students pursuing the master of science in criminal justice.

The summer months traditionally are a “time-off” for many students, when many take summer jobs or just relax. The mini-scholarships are designed to encourage more high caliber students to enroll in May and Summer classes at JSU. These scholarships are intended to help make attending May and Summer Session courses more affordable for these talented young men and women.
