FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A freshman from Forrest City has been selected as the 2014 Boyer Fellow in the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas.
Thea Winston becomes the latest student to be aided by the fellowship that was established in 1999.
To become a Boyer Fellow, a student must score 32 or higher on the ACT, demonstrate financial need and show the potential to be a leader.
The gift commitment provides the student with $50,000 for four years of study - which includes tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, travel and special equipment.
Winston plans to major in accounting and possibly pursue a double major in accounting and finance.
