UCO ALUMNI ASSOCIATION AWARDS OKC METRO AREA STUDENTS LEGACY SCHOLARSHIPS

The University of Central Oklahoma Alumni Association recently named three incoming freshmen from the Oklahoma City metro area Legacy Scholars for the 2011-12 academic year.  The scholars are Michelle Cleveland from Edmond, Taylor Campbell from Moore and Alyssa Ramsey from Midwest City.           

Each will receive a $1,000 scholarship for their freshman year at Central.           

Cleveland plans to major in Spanish education and minor in economics.  Campbell will double major in biology and Spanish and Ramsey plans to major in photography and minor in business.           

The Legacy Scholarship is awarded each year to three incoming freshmen who have either a parent or grandparent who graduated from Central.  The scholarships are funded through donations made by members of the UCO Alumni Association.           

The UCO Alumni Association promotes the general welfare of the university through its members while strengthening the relationship and communication among graduates; current students, faculty and staff; and friends of the university.
