Student Employee Scholarships Awarded By The Division Of Student Affairs

The Division of Student Affairs has announced the new recipients of their Student Affairs Student Employee Scholarship. This year, the division awarded $1,000 to three recipients.

The division’s three recipients include Kiara Green, a resident assistant at Piney Woods, Alexis Swope, also a resident assistant at Piney Woods, and Fadima Diaby, student assistant at the Lowman Student Center.

“Our student employees are the cornerstone of so much of what we do in the division of Student Affairs,” Andrew Miller, interim vice president for Student Affairs, said. “They are on the frontlines providing support to the campus community on a daily basis while also excelling in the classroom. Kiara, Alexis, and Fadima exemplify the values of the division of Student Affairs and I couldn’t be prouder of them.”

Green is a sophomore majoring in psychology with a minor in forensic science. Swope is a junior majoring in animal science with a wildlife management minor. Daiby is a sophomore majoring in psychology with a minor in criminal justice. All three recipients plan to graduate in the spring of 2024.

“I also want to say a note of thanks to the many Student Affairs team members who generously donated in support of the Student Affairs Generation and Student Employee Scholarship,” Miller said. “Their contributions make a significant impact in the lives of these students. It’s truly a team effort.”

The scholarship is also made possible annually through the generosity of SHSU’s staff and faculty and the Giving Today, Strengthening Tomorrow Campaign, which helps provide scholarships, academic and program enrichment, equipment and technology.

Last year, 60 percent of faculty and staff contributed over $230,000.
