Scholarship making a dream a reality

March 13, 2013

Dustin Anderson knew he wanted to major in Exercise Science, and chose Appalachian because of the program's excellent reputation, as well as the mountain environment and small town setting. A recipient of the Stephen Michael Clarke and Keith Emerson Clarke Memorial Scholarship, Dustin has been impressed by the kindness of the faculty and staff he has worked with, as well as their passion for education. Dustin plans to obtain a Master's degree and become a collegiate or professional level strength and conditioning coach. His scholarship is making his dreams a reality."I am thankful to be a scholarship recipient," he says. "Paying for college can be stressful and my scholarship helps relieve this burden."
