Scholarship Recipients


Member Spotlight Scholarship Recipient -Alexis Holmes, University of Colorado Springs, Colorado, 4.0 GPA. -

I am a Freshman majoring in Communications. My primary goal is to help others see that individuals with disabilities can overcome their obstacles and be a functioning member of Society.  I share my story on my blog called The Twists and Turns of My Life. In my blog, I talk about the obstacles of having cerebral palsy. I hope that I can inspire just one person. With help from this scholarship, I can have the opportunity to further my education so that I can become an editor in chief of my own magazine.



Community Service Scholarship Recipient- Bella Hodges, Southeastern Oklahoma State University, 3.97 GPA. -

 I joined the Red Cross in September of 2014. I wanted to be a part of this organization after seeing the destruction caused by the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma in 2013. I I began training and became a disaster responder. I was able to help on different occasions when tornados hit my area years later and I was happy to finally be able to help. In the past few years, I learned about the Pillowcase Project. This is a wonderful program that teaches students grades three to five about how to prepare for emergencies.


Member Spotlight Scholarship Recipient - George Washington University,  3.85 GPA. - I am a graduate student of George Washington University studying Organizational Leadership and Learning. I hope to make an intentional contribution within the leadership roles I now hold. With a Masters in Organizational Leadership I strive to take steps in becoming a world renowned leader showing forth morals, principles, and leadership that men and women can look to as a light within a dark world. I very much enjoy the study of theories including ethical and transformational leadership, authentic leadership, and servant leadership.


Core Values Scholarship - Cherie Yeung. Jose State University, 4.0 GPA. -I am studying for my Masters in Counselor Education at San Jose State University. I double-majored in Human Development and Psychology and minored in Education at UC Davis for my undergraduate education.  Growing up as an immigrant and not knowing any English when I started school in the United States, education means everything to me—growth, opportunity, freedom. I believe that every person has sufficient capability within themselves to accomplish their goals, but with even just a bit of empowerment, one can be limitless in achieving excellence. My dream is to be that extra bit of support for our disadvantaged youth.


Undergraduate Achiever Scholarship - Emma Kane, Stanford University , 4.0 GPA. -

I’m studying International Relations and Communications. I am an intern for the Stanford Women in Business and a committee member of Stanford in Government on campus. During my free-time I enjoy searching for the best ice-cream and chocolate-chip-cookies around campus. I am also deeply interested in the intersection of science, technology, and society and this opportunity allows me to delve into the complex relationship between the three academic platforms. I’d like to develop a six-dimensional perspective when analyzing such an interconnectedness and apply that to the enhancement of the human condition.


Graduate Achiever Scholarship - Flavia Vaduva West Texas A&M University, 4.0 GPA. -I am a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA)  student at WTAMU and I also volunteer outside of the university as a mentor with SPEAK, an organization dedicated to empowering young women of immigrant backgrounds in their education and careers. Outside of my studies, I work full time as a Program Manager and practicing Veterinarian. I earned my Doctorate from Veterinary Medicine in 2016 from the University of Florida and practiced as a small animal general and emergency veterinarian before returning to school to get my MBA. 


Study Abroad Scholarship Recipient -Justin Kyle Bosheers, Middle Tennessee State University, 4.0 GPA. - Currently, I attend Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN, and I am a sophomore. My major is International Relations, with three minors in Theatre, Homeland Security, and Global Studies.Occasionally, I like to act on stage, having recently starred in a local production of Aaron Sorkin’s A Few Good Men. As of late, I have joined two amazing student organizations: Model United Nations and UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund). Additionally, as telecommunications was such a large part of my job in the Army, I became an amateur radio (HAM) operator in July 2017.


Undergraduate Achiever Scholarship Recipient- Kate Ferguson, University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee, 4.0 GPA. -

I am pursuing a BS in Community Engagement and Education. This major is designed for students to understand the causes of urban inequalities and learn the skills required to implement change. Gaining this degree is essential for me to gain the skills needed to contribute to solutions for Milwaukee’s problems. I volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee, spending time with and mentoring my Little Sister. When I have extra time, I enjoy seeing a some of the amazing theatrical production that are put on all around Milwaukee, throwing ceramic mugs and vases on the potter’s wheel, and going on walks with my enthusiastic English Springer Spaniel, Max.


Study Abroad Scholarship Recipient - Nicklaus, Duncan, UNCW , 3.8 GPA. - I am pursuing a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science with a Minor in Pre-Law. Since about the age of five, I have always aspired for a career in the political arena. I decided to attend the faculty-led program for port and maritime security in Israel. This scholarship will provide a tremendous amount of aid in my ability to go to Israel, and will prevent from entering into financial debt, which many college students unfortunately experience. Studying abroad, will not only allow me to graduate an entire semester early, but will help broaden my perspective about how the world actually works, will grow my sense of being an international citizen


Core Values Scholarship - Precious Ohanson. Fort Hays State University, 4.0 GPA. I have a bachelor’s degree in microbiology and presently pursuing another bachelor’s degree in nursing. I am passionate, excellence driven, a dog lover, favorite color is white, and ridiculously loved by God and family. I am one of the executive leaders of the African Ambassadors Student Organization on campus. It has been a wonderful experience since coming to my school. I have met people from different races and had the opportunity to share my culture with them and leaned about their culture as well. I get invited to give presentations about my African culture at “Diversity in the U.S” class on campus and that has been a fun experience for me. My philosophy towards work and life has always been to “pursue excellence and success will follow.”


Study Abroad Scholarship Recipient - Rikenley Michel, Florida International University, 3.75 GPA. - . I am completing my Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration. I enjoy giving back through community service. I have volunteered for events such as the Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service; Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk; and numerous Blood Drives that have benefited the South Florida community. I have made the Dean’s List on numerous occasions during my undergraduate studies. I am studying abroad in Costa Rica. During my time abroad, the program will help me to realize the true meaning of a being a global citizen and inspires me to travel to different places around the world


Society Involvement Scholarship -Sadamoudou Traore, University of Texas at Tyler , 4.0 GPA. - I am currently enrolled in an Executive master’s in business administration of healthcare management. This master's degree program has helped develop my strong leadership skills. I have gained excellence, self confidence and stability from this program. Joining Honor Society is to adhere to it ten core values by pursuing excellence. It’s also consist in embracing excellence, being bold and building a family spirit. The Honor society expect me to be determined and innovative, to seek growth by pursuing leadership, to do more with less and to stay humble as an important trait of a leader.


Community Service Scholarship Recipient - Swen Paguia, Drexel University, 4.0 GPA. - . I am currently enrolled in the MSN-Nurse Anesthesia Program. I am thoroughly enjoying the program thus far and my experience has been very positive, instructors have been fantastic, and advisors have been super helpful. Nurse anesthesia program is very demanding, requires hours of strenuous studying as well as spending hours a few days out of the week fulfilling clinical rotation requirements. With such a hectic schedule, it leaves very little time to work outside of school. Honor Society Scholarship is a big help for me and I can’t stress that enough. This scholarship will help me to direct my focus and energy more on my studies and clinical requirements instead of worrying about my finances and paying for school and student loans.



Graduate Achiever Scholarship - Xiaozhen Zheng, Cornell University, 4.0 GPA. -

I started my graduate study at Cornell University in the fall of 2016, focusing on sensory evaluation. While a large portion of my research project is about flavor chemistry, I actively exposed myself to various literature and available academic conferences related to flavor chemistry. Being a food enthusiastic myself, I always actively seek for nutritious and delicious food around the world. My dream has always been delivering the most nutritious food to the world and increase people's awareness of eating healthy. By studying flavor chemistry and sensory evaluation of food, I was able to gain some understanding on what drives people's liking and preference on certain food, and how to improve the taste profile of the food to match people's preference. In the end, I would like to produce the food that delivers the best nutrients and pleasant sensory experience to people.

I joined and have yet to see a scholarship, only emails trying to get me to buy regalia at discounted prices. I believe a national society should offer more than 14 scholarships to the thousands or more who are members.
