George I. Alden Endowed Scholarship Recipients

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. - University of the Cumberlands annually presents scholarships to qualifying students in the scientific areas. Allison Tyler, Maggie Klauck, Monica Brittain, Keith Jones, Zachary Gosser, Amanda Webb, Johnny Hammons and Jennifer Dillon were each awarded for their achievements during the Honors Day service held at Cumberlands on April 24.

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 Allison Tyler and Maggie Klauck.

Tyler, of Gate City, Va., is a junior math and computer major. She plans to attend graduate school.

Klauck is junior chemistry and biology major with a French minor. She plans to attend graduate school and pursue her doctorate in chemistry. She is from Deltona, Fla.

The six winners of one-half tuition scholarship awards for the 2006-2007 academic year from the George I. Alden Trust are: Monica Brittain, a sophomore from Putney, Ky.; Keith Jones, a senior from Keavy, Ky.; Zachary Gosser, a sophomore from Liberty, Ky.; Amanda Webb, a junior from Leitchfield, Ky.; Johnny Hammons, a junior from Corbin, Ky.; and Jennifer Dillon, a junior from Rockholds, Ky.
