DSU introduces scholarship initiative
A large crowd of Delta State supporters braved the weather and gathered in the Hugh Ellis Walker Alumni/Foundation House at noon on Monday to hear Delta State President Dr. John M. Hilpert officially announce the Delta State University Scholarship Initiative, the largest concentrated effort to raise support for scholarships in the history of the university.
Hilpert began the presentation by reading the day’s headlines from the online publication University Business, all of which related to funding, university budget cuts, financial aid, and paying for higher education. He elaborated on the expenses facing today’s students. “Many of today’s students leave college with huge financial burdens,” said Hilpert. “Studies show that debt burdens can actually skew career choices. Students with large financial burdens, sometimes cannot afford careers in the “helping” positions such as teachers and social workers; positions we desperately need in the Delta.”
