Cumberlands Announces George I. Alden Recipients

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. - University of the Cumberlands annually presents scholarships to qualifying students in the scientific areas. Zachary Gosser, Lisa West, Kristina Bishop, Jarrod T. Hampton, Lauren Howe, Kelly Mason, Lesley A. Roberts and Stephen B. Tipton were each awarded for their achievements during the Honor’s Day service held at Cumberlands on April 23.

In 1981, the George I. Alden Trust established the George I. Alden Endowed Scholarship Fund at the then Cumberland College. The income from this fund is to be used to provide one-half tuition scholarships for six students and full tuition scholarships for two students, all of whom must be majoring in the scientific areas. To be eligible to receive one of the two full tuition scholarships, a student must have previously won a one-half scholarship.

The two recipients of full tuition scholarships for the 2006-2007 academic year from the George I. Alden Endowed Scholarship Fund are Zachary Gosser and Lisa West.

Gosser, of Liberty, Ky., is a junior chemistry major with a physics and math minor.

West, of Barbourville, Ky., is a junior biology major and chemistry minor. She plans to attend medical school and become a physician.

The six winners of one-half tuition scholarship awards for the 2006-2007 academic year from the George I. Alden Trust are: Kristina Bishop, a sophomore from Big Bear City, Calif.; Jarrod T. Hampton, a sophomore from Pineville, Ky.; Lauren Howe, a sophomore from Dry Ridge, Ky.; Kelly Mason, a junior from Florence, Ky.; Lesley A. Roberts, a sophomore from Connersville, Ind.; and Stephen B. Tipton, a sophomore from Connersville, Ind.
