2009 Linual Cameron Memorial Scholarship awarded to Janet Jamison

Oct. 26, 2009 -- The Strong-Turner Alumni Chapter of the Arkansas State University Alumni Association has selected Janet Jamison of Monticello, Ark, as the recipient of the 2009 Linual Cameron Memorial Scholarship. On Saturday, October 24, Ms. Jamison was recognized at a reception in her honor in the Student Union’s Mockingbird Room at Arkansas State University-Jonesboro. Her parents are Paul and Gaynell Jamison of Monticello, Arkansas.

The scholarship, valued at $2,000 for the academic year, recognizes outstanding upper level African-American students who have demonstrated leadership potential, academic achievement and excellent citizenship.

Jamison, a 2007 graduate of Monticello High School, is a junior majoring in Biology with a pre-professional emphasis in Chemistry at Arkansas State University. She is a member of the Honors College Association, Pre-Pharmacy Club, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Sigma Alpha Lambda National Leadership and Honors Organization, Delta Epsilon Iota Academic Honor Society, National Society of Leadership and Success, and Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society. Ms Jamison has received the following awards during her time at Arkansas State University: Chancellor’s List, Strong-Turner Freshman Achievement Award, Freshman Writing Award Nominee, and Strong-Turner 3.0 Club. She will graduate from Arkansas State University in May 2011. After graduation, she plans to either attend Pharmacy School or pursue a career in biomedical research.

The Linual Cameron Memorial Scholarship is provided through an endowment established by the Strong-Turner Alumni Chapter in memory of Linual Cameron, who was vice president of finance at Arkansas State University for 24 years. The chapter set up the endowment to recognize Cameron as a strong supporter of African-American students at ASU, particularly those who demonstrated strong academic achievement and leadership potential.
