Two recent Marshall University graduates from the College of Liberal Arts have earned the Hazel Ruby McQuain Graduate Scholarship, which provides $20,000 annually for up to two years for master’s degree students.
Hannah Smith, who graduated last month with a degree in anthropology, will pursue a master’s degree in environmental management from Duke University. Jacob Redman, a 2019 political science graduate from Marshall, will pursue a master’s degree in American foreign policy and national security at American University.Recipients of the Hazel Ruby McQuain Graduate Scholarship are chosen partly on the basis of demonstrating good moral character and their noteworthy record of public service and active leadership. McQuain was a Morgantown resident and businesswoman who graduated from three West Virginia institutions and took over the presidency of Ruby Enterprises after the death of her father. Later in life, she devoted much of her time to philanthropy and community development and service in the Morgantown area.Read more in the original MU press release
