Alumni Relations announces recipients of Legacy Scholarships, seeks nominations for 2014-15

The 2013-14 Alumni Legacy Scholarship recipients are Bailey Jenkins ’17 and Amelia McConnell ’16. Each student received $2,000.

Jenkins is a biology major from Roanoke. Her father, Scott Jenkins, graduated from Longwood in 1992.

McConnell is a graphic design major who has lived in many places as the daughter of an Army colonel. Her sisters are both Longwood alums: Ashlee McConnell Snider ’09 and Alecia McConnell ’12.

Two legacy scholarships are awarded each year to students whose mother, father, sister, brother, grandmother or grandfather attended Longwood. One goes to a new student, the other to a returning student. If you know a student who qualifies, please be sure to submit an application to the Office of Alumni Relations by June 15. Application forms are online.

Since the Legacy Scholarship program began in 1988, 52 relatives of alumni have received help in financing their Longwood education.
