Attending Grapevine High School, Courtney Jahner, of Colleyville, TX, obtained valuable life skills, which she plans to take with her to college. A dedicated varsity softball player, she also devoted her time to serving in a student leadership class, saying, “I take pride in being involved and hope to carry this attitude into college.”

While developing these skills, she took time to consider where she would spend the next four years of her life. Taking a tour of the University of Arkansas, the moment she stepped on the Fayetteville campus, she admits that it “felt like home.”

“Thank you so much for the $1,000 dollar renewable scholarship. I am sincerely honored that I have been chosen to receive this scholarship. I am grateful for the funds because the money will help me focus more on my schooling rather than worry about how I will pay for the expenses,” she said.

Displaying her enjoyment of working with children, Jahner plans to major in pre-occupational therapy and one day, work in pediatrics. Currently, she volunteers at Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in order to obtain additional experience.

While much of her time on campus will be devoted to academics, she plans to join a sorority, as well as embrace her competitive nature and participate in intramural sports.
