"This was an extremely positive weekend for our prospective students and family members who received personal attention from our students, faculty, and staff," said Chadd Bridwell, Dean of Enrollment Services. "These students fit in to the Centenary family so well, it felt as if we were welcoming them home and I have no doubt that they will have a successful time on campus. We cannot wait to see them here next fall."

Five students received a phone call from President David Rowe notifying and congratulating them on their prestigious full-tuition Nan Christian Scholarship award:

  • Danielle Adams, Florida
  • Brendan Hartman, Texas
  • Marissa Ferreyros, Louisiana
  • Alex Shannon, Arkansas
  • Kaity Mussio, Michigan

"I was very happy to hear the good news," said Shannon. "I was almost in disbelief; it is the best news I have received in a long time. I feel blessed to be awarded with such an honor and I am excited for these next four years at Centenary!"

The remaining students received the 1825 scholarship, an impressive award touting thousands of dollars of aid annually:

  • Rebekah "LeAnn" Bennett, Louisiana
  • Jessica Truong, Louisiana
  • Collin Hughes, Louisiana
  • Nick Sacco, Texas
