Madeline Edmonds, Grandview University

I am so grateful being a recipient of the James B Morris Scholarship. This scholarship has provided the financial assistance that enables me to continue my studies at Grandview University in the Computer Science program. With being able to focus on my studies I have been able to be on the Dean’s List while attending Grandview.

Thank you.
