ELOC Alumni Scholarship
The annual ELOC Alumni Scholarship was initiated by the inaugural class of 2008. The class of 2008 wanted to give something back to the ELOC program for the great learning experience it had during the program, and the scholarship was launched on 2009. The alumni scholarship golf outing, which raises the money for the scholarship, usually takes place in June each year. Following the fundraising event, a call for scholarship applications will go out to those qualified to apply.
Ray Sandfoss Life-long Learning Scholarship
This annual scholarship is sponsored by Ray Sandfoss, a 2009 graduate of the ELOC program. This scholarship is awarded to the current ELOC student who exemplifies the outstanding leadership and spirit of the ELOC program. A call for applications will out to those qualified to apply.
I have started the Life Long Learner Scholarship because of the profound impact that the ELOC program has had on me and my perspective on life. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Philosophy from Morehead State University in 1983. Since that time, it was always my desire to obtain a Masters Degree. I had attended a few colleges since then. But, I finally fulfilled that desire in 2009 when I successfully completed the ELOC program.
The ELOC program taught me to relax, to be aware of others desires, seek to understand, to realize that life is a journey, and most of all, to always be reflective and grow from my experiences. These lessons came in extremely handy in the summer of 2009, when I was suddenly diagnosed with malignant Renal Cell Carcinoma, kidney cancer. The ELOC program played a huge part on my outlook on that successful surgery and on my outlook on life since then. Because of this, I have decided to give back to NKU, the Haile/US Bank College of Business, and the ELOC program by starting this scholarship. I know it will be well received, utilized fully, and greatly appreciated, having completed the ELOC program myself . . . May the ELOC program be as rewarding and enriching for the recipient of this scholarship, as it has been for me, and may that recipient always be a “Life Long Learner”!
