SAA Senior Receives CBU Leadership Scholarship
03 Mar, 2023
After recently participating in the Leadership Scholarship Competition at Christian Brothers University, Melia Bishop was selected as the winner of the event and has earned a full tuition scholarship to CBU.
The Leadership Scholarship Program at CBU is a prestigious scholarship that recognizes outstanding students for their leadership and service in their community. As part of the scholarship competition Melia, along with 50 other students, participated in team-building activities, conversations with current CBU students, and an intense interview process with faculty and admissions staff.
Representatives from CBU surprised Melia at school on March 1 with the announcement-with her family and friends there to celebrate. According to Neel Dixon, Admissions Counselor at CBU, “Melia displayed great character, decision-making, and joy in every arena of the competition.”
At St. Agnes, Melia is involved in a variety of organizations and honor societies including the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, Beta Club, Black Student Union and Forever Friends. She serves SAA as a Freshman Star Guide and as a tutor in the Learning Lab. Melia competes as a member of the Robotics Team and the Track and Field team. She is also active in the community serving as an intern for MPLOY, a Youth Summer Program, and she recently started a sock driver at her local church to provide socks in winter for the homeless.
Melia plans to study Mechanical Engineering in college.
