Four Chosen for Scholarships with Ashford University

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - Some employees will be furthering their education after being awarded a scholarship through the Learning Institute's Employee Education Assistance Program.

The grants are provided through a partnership with Ashford University's Forbes School of Business and the City. Students must meet certain requirements to be considered. 

Environmental Affairs Manager Sharon Lewis Murphy had applied several times.

"I'd told myself this was the last time I was going to apply and I'm so glad I did. I'm a little scared, but I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of classes and class work."

Applying for the scholarship was something Accounting Assistant Michelle Eden could not pass up. 

"Completing my education has been a goal for many years," she said. "I am so excited to get started!"
