Sperry receives scholarship at CSC

Carl Sandburg College student from Oneida, was the one student in the state to receive the Mid-America Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel Board of Directors Scholarship.

MAEOPP is the regional professional association for the TRIO programs and encompasses a 10-state region.

Each four-year college and community college with a TRIO program is allowed to nominate one student for scholarship consideration. Sperry was selected from the CSC program. MAEOPP then selects one student from each state to receive a scholarship. Grades, co-curricular or community activity involvement, and an essay are factors considered.

As part of the application process, Sperry wrote an essay explaining her accomplishments, her grade point average, to what four-year school she would transfer and in what field she would major, as well as other relevant personal information. Sperry has completed her associate in applied science degree at Carl Sandburg College and will transfer to Kendall College, taking online classes, this summer to major in early childhood education. Sperry was an active member of the TRIO Student Support Services program while attending CSC.
