Faculty Senate to honor scholarship recipients

The winners of the 2004 Merit Scholarship Award will be honored at a special meeting of the Faculty Senate on Thursday, Feb. 17 at 4 p.m. in the Hinde Auditorium.

Winners are chosen based upon high academic achievement and their service and contributions to the campus and community. The scholarship award is equivalent to registration fees for the spring 2005 semester.

Samantha Hilber, a senior biology major, is conducting research of the eggs of convict cichlid fish for a student research competition and is active at the University as a new student orientation leader, a member of the marching band and a coach for a Special Olympics soccer team. Hilber plans to attend graduate school to study animal behavior.

Sheena Murray, a senior and double major in economics and government, works and attends school full-time while active in several organizations, including the College Democrats, F.M.L.A. and the Sacramento National Organization of Women, where she is a board member. Murray intends to pursue a master’s degree in economics and work in public policy development.

Sheila Bumgarner, a senior social work major, overcame personal difficulties and now works in the community as a volunteer with Safe-Quest, the outreach program at Solano County Jail and Solano County Youth and Family Services. Bumgarner plans to continue her education in the master’s of social work program.

Kristen Sweet, a second-year student in the master’s of social work program, has been dedicated to social work for several years, as a volunteer in a treatment center for two years for Americorps and as a Peace Corp volunteer in Ecuador for two years. Sweet is currently interning with the Foster Youth Services program and intends to become a licensed clinical social worker following the completion of her master’s degree.

Faculty members are encouraged to attend. For more information contact the Faculty Senate office at 278-6593.
