Clayton State University recently selected six outstanding high school graduates to be the University’s first Presidential Scholars. Kahlea Crowe, a resident of Lithonia, Ga., and a graduate of Miller Grove High School, is one of those scholars.
“These students represent the academic best of our incoming freshmen. They are very talented academically, they wrote competitive essays, and they chose Clayton State,” says Clayton State President Dr. Thomas J. “Tim” Hynes, Jr.
Crowe, who is excited and proud to be honored this way, is eager to begin her college experience. As the first day (Aug. 16, 2010) approaches, she grows more excited to be attending college at Clayton State.
“Being a Presidential Scholar is such a prestigious honor and it motivates me to work tactfully and carefully so that I can maintain this wonderful scholarship opportunity,” says Crowe.
She says she chose Clayton State because its location is not too far from home; it has an impressive School of Business, and a friendly yet secure campus. Noting the campus landscape, with its multiple types of water fowl, lakes and ponds, the Laker Hall residence hall, and the Morrow area, Crowe seems pleased with it all.
In her essay to qualify for the scholarship, she expressed her plans to succeed and create a prosperous business while still aiding her family and her community.
"College is a gateway,” says Crowe, who adds that she feels Clayton State encourages students to explore their interests, make new friends, and prepare for their futures.
