Family Association Scholarship Winner Emily Absher

Emily Absher

Wylmette “Heather” Gayle Memorial Scholarship Recipient

"In my honors courses, I continue to find inspiration for my work as an actor and meaning in my studies as an upcoming senior at Texas State. This summer, I will study abroad in London, England and work with my favorite Shakespeare company in the world, the Royal Shakespeare Company. I will even perform on The Globe stage. I remain on track to graduate with a BFA in Acting and a minor in Honors Studies."

"I have always had a love for nature and wildlife, and I believe that a connection to nature can give people a better life. By working to conserve wildlife, I hope to protect natural spaces and help people find joy and a sense of discovery in nature. The wildlife biology program at Texas State University is among the top programs in the state, and I have been thrilled with the deep knowledge and love for the subject shown by the instructors here."

Family Association Scholarship Winner Alina Rajbhandari

Alina Rajbhandari

Heloise Bowles Memorial Endowed Scholarship Recipient

"My ultimate goal is to receive my doctorate in Mathematics and become a professor so that I can share my joy for Mathematics with other students. After pursuing my Ph.D, I want to go to different parts of the world and help children and women who have been deprived of education due to religious boundaries. Belonging from a nation where still more than half of the population follows the superstitious belief, I understand what these children have to face. Hence, I want to do something to help these children and women so that I can give an effort to make a difference in this world."
