Truman Scholar

Junior Kelley Greenman (right) is all smiles upon learning from Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton that she has just been awarded a 2008 Harry S. Truman Scholarship. Truman Scholars are selected based on academic performance, leadership and dedication to public service. Greenman, who is from Marathon, Fla., is one of 65 scholars selected from among 595 candidates nominated by 283 colleges and universities. Joy Kiefer, Ph.D. (center), assistant dean in Arts & Sciences, nominated and supported Greenman throughout the arduous application process. “I couldn’t be more excited and grateful to receive this honor,” said Greenman, an environmental studies in Arts & Sciences major. Her award will provide up to $30,000 for graduate study.
