“I love many things about Marshall. First and foremost, educating the next generation in an area that needs a good, higher education institution with a big heart. I love the Marshall Artists Series, which brings Broadway and other exciting shows right to our city, and the dedicated and intellectual faculty that add to the richness of our community.” -Dr. Joseph B. Touma

“As a scholarship, the funds will go directly to deserving students, paying forward the blessings I received as a student. Everyone should have the opportunity for higher education if they want it, and financial limitations should not be a deciding factor. Gifts, like mine, will hopefully remove that obstacle for deserving students.” – Lorie Wyant, Marshall Alumna and donor

“My scholarships are such a blessing to me because, without them, I would be graduating with tens of thousands of dollars in debt. Achieving my goals to get these scholarships was amazing, but it would not be at all possible if the scholarships were not available. I’d love to thank every single individual, including the community, that played a role in making it possible for students like me to get the opportunity to take part in the educational process.” – Jakob Jitima, Biology, Class of 2020
