Janssen receives McAllaster Honors Scholarship

GREENVILLE — Greenville University had names Terry Janssen, of Metropolis, as a recipient of the McAllaster Honors Scholarship. The $20,500 scholarship is offered for fall 2022 and is renewable annually.

“Terry exhibits the leadership qualities and academic excellence the university and scholarship sponsors look for when choosing a recipient,” said Dewayne Neeley, member of the McAllaster Honors Program Scholarship Committee.

The McAllaster Honors Scholarship program nurtures excellent students who are especially gifted to serve God and neighbor through the work of Christian learning and research.

Elva McAllaster was a longtime professor of English at GU and the namesake of GU’s honors program. She was known for saying, “Learning is a joyous enterprise.” Students will understand what she meant when they take part in this intimate learning community with its rich academic, social and spiritual experiences.

Program opportunities include uniquely challenging academic coursework, an honors thesis and special events.

To qualify for the McAllaster Scholars program, students must have a high school GPA of 3.3 or higher. The program is limited to 30 students per year.

“Terry will be a part of a group of scholars who will be trained for future leadership on campus, host events for other groups and promote academic pursuits throughout the campus community,” Neeley said. “We congratulate Terry on this auspicious award.”

Greenville University has a unique approach to student scholarships, investing in students who receive leadership scholarships, preparing them for leadership on campus and for lives of character and service beyond their years in college. One hundred% of students at the university receive some form of financial aid.
