Perfect score wins Penn State Fayette student kinesiology scholarship

12/14/2007 —
Alicia Daerr is the recipient of the fall award of the 2007-2008 Scholarship Award for Kinesiology at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus. The $200 scholarship is awarded twice a year—spring and fall—to a full-time Penn State Fayette student taking a kinesiology activity class. Candidates must have a minimum 3.0 GPA, have excellent attendance, work hard in the class, and write an essay on the topic “Why Physical Activity is Important,” which is scored by a panel of judges.

Three other candidates in the running were: Ed Banko, Melissa Mack and Annie Walkush. Kinesiology Scholarship Committee Chairman and Penn State Fayette Kinesiology Instructor Jes Hutson observes, “Without doubt, this was the strongest group of applicants that we have ever had since we started the award four years ago. The essays and scores were great, and Alicia earned the first-ever perfect score.”

Daerr is a Human Development Family Studies student from Scottdale, Pa. She is scheduled to graduate in 2009.
