Eakin earns scholarship
Special to The Herald
Kristen Eakin, a junior Chemistry and Pre-Med Major at Delta State University from Yazoo City, was recently awarded the Doyce Stallings Mitchell Endowed Scholarship.
She is the first recipient of this scholarship, which will be awarded annual to a community-college transfer student with the highest grade point average on a minimum of 62 hours of academic credit and who also exudes the honorable qualities that were characteristic of Doyce’s life.
The scholarship is also combined with Delta State’s existing Phi Theta Kappa scholarship, which covers the full tuition of a deserving Phi Theta Kappa transfer student from any Mississippi community college.
