University Foundation Announces New Student Scholarships

Two new annual scholarships were recently established through the Truman State University Foundation.

Gregory Meier, a 1989 business administration and accounting graduate, and Cindy Dodson, a 1987 business administration and business education graduate, established these scholarships to assist current Truman State University students. Each scholarship for $750 will be awarded annually for the next four years. The 2005-2006 academic year marks the first time the scholarships will be awarded.

Meier and Dodson met as students while participating in activities at the Newman Center and established the Gregory and Donna Meier and Friends Newman Center Scholarship to honor the organization and assist current students. Preference in awarding will be given to students of junior status or above who are active members of an off-campus service or charitable organization such as the Newman Center.

The Gregory and Donna Meier and Friends Business Scholarship will be given to students, junior or above, majoring in business administration or accountancy, demonstrating leadership through at least one campus organization. Students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and can not be receiving other academic scholarships.

The Debra Fortenberry Nichols Brass Scholarship was recently established through the Truman State University Foundation as well.

This endowed scholarship was established by Dr. David C. Nichols and Debra Fortenberry Nichols in honor of Dr. Gregory Jones, professor of trumpet, in recognition of his contributions to music at Truman State University.

The first scholarship will be awarded in 2005-2006 and will be awarded to an incoming freshman trumpet or horn player. Preference will be given to music majors.
