Understanding the pressures of paying for college, Jacob Davies is thankful to have received the 2011 Razorback Generations Scholarship from the Arkansas Alumni Association. Growing up in Springdale, Davies has been surrounded by the University of Arkansas culture and the Razorback pride. As a high school student, his involvement in school activities and his drive to succeed academically, both led him to realize the possibilities that would be open to him at the university.
“Thank you so much for the generous scholarship! I was awarded the Arkansas Alumni Association Generations Scholarship in the amount of $2,500, renewable for an additional three years. This scholarship will make a huge difference in furthering my education and will provide a way for me to enter college and receive a truly reputable education. I am fully responsible for my college tuition, so this scholarship will greatly reduce my financial burden as a full-time student,” he said in his thank you letter.
Opting to enroll in the Sam M. Walton College of Business, Davies plans to pursue a business degree with a minor in Spanish. Having a passion for various cultures and languages, he believes the degrees he has chosen will prepare and allow him to excel in his future career.
During his four years on campus, Davies plans to spend his time not only studying, but getting involved in student life. Interested in joining Greek Life, he also looks forward to participating in a Christian organization on campus.
“Once again, I cannot truly thank you enough for your generous support. It is a blessing to receive the scholarship amount that I did! Each and every dollar makes a huge difference in my life. This money not only contributes to furthering my education, but financially provides a way for my future. Thank you for everything.”
