MerkinDear Scholarship Board,

My sophomore year I loved being an RA. I lived in Cooper and was the hall RA for 47 freshmen. As an RA I won Top 5 Program at the regional RA conference “RAppin” where RAs from Wyoming to New Mexico come and preset different ideas and put on workshops. Mine was about sexual education and sexual assault prevention. I changed my major from Political Science and Philosophy to Political Science and English. I’m still wanting to pursue a Masters of Divinity after my time at the Fort. I would like to thank you for the scholarship, it has really helped me.

Please note that from time to time the Scholarship Board hears from our Smith Scholarship recipients. In an effort to keep the church in touch with these scholars, we hope to post all notes on this website. To date the Smith Scholarship Trust has helped over 100 of our youth pursue their higher education goals and vocational training.
