Central Methodist University has a long history of generous donors endowing scholarships to ensure students have needed resources as they work to complete their college education.
More than 300 students were named the recipients of scholarships for the 2017-2018 academic year.
"All scholarships are awarded by a stewardship coordinator based on a student's high academic performance, and following the donor's wishes," said Jackie Jackson, director of annual giving and operations at CMU.
According to Jackson, one of CMU's highest honors is to be selected as a recipient of an endowed or Hall of Sponsors scholarship. These scholarships are assigned to CMU's best and brightest students based on high academic standards, and contribution to their school and community.
