Phillips Legacy Foundation announces scholarship recipients

ENID, Okla. (8/2/03) — Sixteen students attending Disciples-related colleges and universities will receive a total of $54,000 in scholarships from the Phillips University Legacy Foundation for the 2003-2004 academic year.

Connie Cravens, Chair of the Undergraduate Scholarship Review Committee, announced the scholarship recipients yesterday. E

ight of the student awardees were continued from the first class of scholarship recipients in 2002-2003. The other eight are new awardees.

Renewed grant recipients are Amanda Hall, a sophomore at Columbia College; Cara Haymaker, a junior at Drury University; Bethany Loader, a sophomore at Transylvania University; Mary Krumrei, Casey Peters, and Mallory Watson, all sophomores at Texas Christian University; and Cameron Wallace and Kristin Wharry, both TCU seniors.

New recipients are Nathaniel Carroll, a Drury University freshman; Amber Dixson, a Chapman University junior; Aaron Frazier, a Drake University junior; Langdon Ryan, a Transylvania University freshman; Michael Schluckebier, a Drury University senior; and Shannon Chambers, Suzanne Eversmeyer, and Lauren Love, all freshmen at Texas Christian University.

Gene Challenner, chair of the foundation's board of directors, said the students chosen have excellent academic records and have demonstrated leadership talent in their school, church, and community.

In May 2001, the Phillips University Board of Trustees transferred $3 million of the university's remaining assets to the Phillips University Legacy Foundation to provide funds for the scholarship program.

The Legacy Foundation works with the Division of Higher Education of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in administering the scholarships. The Legacy Scholars will attend a conference in conjunction with the 24 DHE Leadership Fellows in Oklahoma City this November.
