Three MCC-Longview students receive major Rockhurst University scholarships

Congratulations to three MCC-Longview students picked to receive 3/4 scholarships from Rockhurst University in Kansas City.

Leandra Stuckey, Jacob Turney and Kristine Vainovska will receive scholarships that will cover three-quarters of their costs at Rockhurst. The three joined hundreds of others from around the Midwest who applied for the only three scholarships given by the university.

Kristine is an international student from Latvia, and this is the second scholarship she has received.

"This is extremely exciting, honoring, and humbling to me. The two and a half years I have spent at Longview have truly paid off, as I have taken the advantage of all the possible opportunities open to me," she said. Kristine said she is looking forward to attending Rockhurst this fall and will major in Organizational leadership studies and minor in business administration.

Jacob tarted Longview in Spring of 2010, and will graduate this month with his AA degree. He will transfer in the fall to pursue his bachelor's degree in pre-medicine, with a major likely in humanities or liberal arts.  

"I am elated to have been awarded the Rockhurst scholarship, and will be very proud to attend should I stay in town," he said.

Leandra Stuckey plans to attend Rockhurst as well in the fall after graduating from MCC-Longview.
