Life gets a little better for FAMU scholars

Each scholar received an HP Elite Book 2450p and an Apple iPad as part of the FAMU Presidential Scholarship Program, which includes the Life Gets Better Scholarship and the Distinguished Scholar Award.
 
With smiles stretching from ear to ear and sounds of students saying ‘Yes,’ 22 Florida A&M University scholars were full of joy and excitement when FAMU President James H. Ammons presented them with a couple of items to assist them with their studies.  Each scholar received an HP Elite Book 2450p and an Apple iPad as part of the FAMU Presidential Scholarship Program, which includes the Life Gets Better Scholarship and the Distinguished Scholar Award.

The scholars were so overwhelmed that it left one scholar speechless.
 “I am truly speechless,” said Nellena Adekoya, a biology major from Grayson, Ga. “I have never had so much available at my fingertips.”

 This group of scholars is from Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Delaware, Maryland, Michigan and Virginia.  One scholar, Joel Sankar, is a native of Tunapuna, Trinadad.

“I’m very excited and humbled by the gifts that I have received,” said Sankar, a chemistry major.  “They [computers] are very necessary for our education and for us to succeed.”

 Aubrey Upsher, a journalism major, expressed that he was very appreciative.
“I received more than I expected,” said Upsher.  “These are some excellent tools to have. This will definitely help me in my classes.”
