Act 101 Scholarship Awards

Act 101/EOP students, Keah Brown and Marletia Pressley, were recently selected recipients of the 2015 Pennsylvania Association of Developmental Educators (PADE) Scholarship Award presented to Bloomsburg University at PADE’s annual conference this spring.

Each student received $250 for books for the fall 2015 semester. The awards were presented by Melissa Cheese, interim director of Act 101/EOP, and Tara Diehl, developmental mathematics instructor. Both students are completing their freshmen year as intended psychology majors and are actively involved in campus student organizations.
