The Department of Management, Marketing and International Business is pleased to announce Patterson Scholars for the 2013-14 academic year.
The Patterson Scholarship is the largest scholarship on Eastern Kentucky University’s campus. Since its establishment in 1997, the endowment is made available to student applicants who have already declared a major in Business and Marketing Education, General Business, Management, or Marketing.
2013-14 Patterson Scholars:
- Shaun Cawley (sophomore), Florence, Ky.
- Jordan Koeller (sophomore), New London, Wi.
- Austin Molen (sophomore), Florence, Ky.
- Katie Beck (junior), Guston, Ky.
- Chris Bunge (junior), Lexington, Ky.
- Macy Huff (junior), Mt. Sterling, Ky.
- Ian Hopkins (senior), Frankfort, Ky.
Each student will be awarded $1,000 per semester for two semesters. Requirements for the scholarship are a minimum 24 ACT score and a 3.0 cumulative GPA. Students submit three letters of reference and consideration is given to evidence of leadership and work-related activities.
While this scholarship may be renewed annually, the endowment is entirely conditional upon student involvement in the following areas:
Each student scholar is required to attend at least one Spotlight event to meet with students and answer questions about Management, Marketing and International Business to fulfill the service obligation. “They are the face of the department,” stated Kevin Cumiskey, Patterson Scholarship Committee Coordinator.
“Ian spoke to the Future Business Leaders of America in October on behalf of the MMIB department at EKU,” commented Cumiskey.
Aside from recruitment and service obligations, student scholars are also expected to take on leadership roles in campus student organizations and strive to maintain a high level of academic success.
EKU graduated four Patterson Scholars last year and is hoping to recruit sixteen more for the coming year.
