Online scholarships, not just a dream
Nettleton High graduate Kyle Morgan will enter ASU this fall as a University Honors recipient and as a recipient of a $50,000 Entrepreneurial Scholarship from the McKelvey Foundation, founded by Monster.com CEO Richard McKelvey. Morgan is one of only 10 students selected nationwide for this prestigious scholarship, following a lengthy selection process with nearly 400 applicants. Upon his acceptance, Morgan was flown to Pennsylvania for a three day camp earlier in the summer. Morgan did his homework for this, researching online and applying for the scholarship. Congrats to Morgan for a job well done. For more details about the scholarship or the foundation, click here.
