Stories From Past Charlotte Tucker Scholarship Recipients

“As a type 1 diabetic, I am aware of the technological advances in the treatment for type 1 diabetes, and I am hoping that I can use my education to further help the way diabetes is cared for and make life for all those with type 1 diabetes easier in the future.”

“Academically I have been named to the Dean’s List for the past three semesters and was just recently awarded with a Psychology Scholar-Athlete Award. This award is presented to a student who maintains high academic performance while also participating in college athletics. I take pride in being a student-athlete and role model in the community and look forward to my senior year.”
