Isis Thornton - 2017 Recipient
Student Persistence Award (Lester A. Lefton Persistence Award).
Class Standing 2017-18
Senior at the Kent campus.
I want to thank you so much for helping me continue my education this year. Receiving this scholarship means so much to me because it means that you saw something in me worth investing in, even as a senior. That is important I did not know if I would even be able to finish my education, and I have come so far. Thanks to you, I intend to graduate this spring.
Goals and Future Plans
My current goals are making Dean's List both semesters of my senior year, winning this year's step show performance, and building bonds with professors. My long-term goals are to pass the graduate record examinations, apply to all the graduate schools I want to attend, be accepted, and graduate undergraduate on time.
