CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.,

Aug. 26, 2005 – Joshua Monroe of Sikeston, Mo., a secondary math education major at the Sikeston Area Higher Education Center (SAHEC), has been awarded the C.P. Black Scholarship for the 2005-2006 academic year.

The $1,000 award is based on a memorial Southeast faculty member Dr. Mary Ann DeLine, assistant professor of middle and secondary education, established in honor of her uncle, C.P. Black.  The scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate student attending SAHEC who pursues an undergraduate degree in education from Southeast.  The scholarship is renewable.

Monroe says he is very grateful for the award.

“I feel great about it,” Monroe said.  “I’m honored to actually get this scholarship.  It definitely helps a person when they are trying to get through college.”

SAHEC officials say Monroe is a model college student.

“Joshua is a very conscientious young man pursuing a career in education to help young people,” said Judy Buck, director of the Sikeston Area Higher Education Center.  “And that’s what the Center is all about – helping people.  He works and goes to school, and represents the type of student we’re trying to serve.”
