of Academy scholars held at Murray State University on Sept. 17.
Dr. Warren Edminster, Academic Dean of the Academy,
and Dr. Don Robertson, Vice President for Student Affairs of Murray State presented the award to Alger. Alger and 93 other students completed the three-week Academy at Murray
State between June 3 and June 25.  During the three weeks, Academy
scholars took two college-level courses, (in which Alger earned an “A” in
both courses) attended multiple lectures, concerts, field trips, and forums,
and participated in a tri-weekly personal development seminar.  As a
successful graduate of the Academy, Alger will receive six hours of
university credit, a $2,000 per year Murray State housing scholarship, and
the option to take six additional hours from Murray State tuition-free.
