When I Needed It Most

By Christina Miller, office assistant, CU University Communications

The summer before my senior year at Campbellsville University, my dad lost his job because of the economy. I wasn't sure where I would be financially, but I had hoped God would provide a little here and there to help my family pay for my education.

An endowed scholarship, the Stan and Joan Cottongim McKinney Mass Communication Endowed Scholarship, helped me at a time I needed it most. Soon after beginning my senior year at CU, I happily found out I was the recipient of the mass communication scholarship.

While the scholarship amount isn't comparable to total tuition, it's these types of scholarships that have allowed me to graduate debt-free!

I learned about the scholarship through having class with and working with Stan McKinney on the Campus Times, and also from working as an intern with Joan McKinney in the Office of University Communications.

Less than two months after graduating in May 2010, I was offered a full-time job serving as an office assistant in the Office of University Communications.

The endowed scholarship not only helped me graduate college without financial worries, but also allowed me to start my career in my field of study when finding a full-time job straight out of college seemed unlikely.

I am proud to serve my alma mater.
