STARKVILLE, Miss.—Mississippi State’s Judy and Bobby Shackouls Honors College is announcing its newest Presidential Endowed Scholarship recipients. Nine freshmen representing Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Tennessee are being recognized with the university’s most prestigious undergraduate scholarships, which over four years cover the current cost of university tuition, fees, books, and room and board, as well as research and study-abroad expenses. To qualify, applicants must have a minimum 30 ACT/1330 SAT score, as well as have graduated with a minimum core or overall 3.75 high school GPA (based on a 4.0 scale). Recipients are expected to maintain an overall 3.4 GPA while in their respective academic majors. Presidential Scholars have opportunities to interact with members of the land-grant institution’s extensive research faculty and be part of the honors college’s summer-study program at Oxford University in England, among other enhanced learning experiences. MSU Presidential Scholars Mentor Donald M. Shaffer Jr. said while the pandemic has presented challenges for this academic year, faculty and staff in the honors college and across the university remain committed to “doing our very best to facilitate student success.” This year’s Presidential Scholars class from Lee County includes: GUNTOWN—David C. Heson, a physics major and Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science graduate receiving a Hassell Franklin Presidential Endowed Scholarship. TUPELO—Courtney N. Cochran, a chemical engineering major and Tupelo Christian Preparatory School graduate receiving a Mickey and Babs Holliman Presidential Endowed Scholarship.
