ASU's top scholarship

Arkansas State University awarded its highest and most prestigious scholarship, the ASTATE Scholar, to two Walnut Ridge High School seniors on Dec. 16.

Receiving the scholarship are Taylor Hicks and Beth Massey. Hicks is the son of Tori and Misti Hicks, and Massey is the daughter of Cary and Raelyne Massey.

Representatives from The Honors College, the Office of Admissions and other campus dignitaries visited WRHS as a "Prize Patrol" and surprised the awardees in their classes. The Prize Patrol visited WRHS and other schools with recipients from Dec. 10-16.

The ASTATE Scholar awardees can count themselves among the most academically talented scholars in the state of Arkansas. The ASTATE Scholar endows each recipient with a yearly $14,000 academic scholarship, including a double occupancy room for on-campus housing (valued at $3,720). The total value for four years is $56,000.

To maintain the scholarship, students must meet certain requirements such as taking one honors course each semester, maintaining 3.50+ cumulative GPA and completing 15 credit hours per semester.
