TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -
Florida A&M University (FAMU) student Steven A. James, a sophomore, nursing student from Tallahassee, Fla., was awarded the Arthur Thompson Scholarship. The scholarship is worth $2,500.
For more than 20 years, FAMU supporter Arthur Thompson has provided assistance to university students through an annual scholarship in his name. The scholarship is awarded each year to a FAMU student enrolled full-time that has graduated from a Big Bend area high school. James is a graduate of Amos P. Godby High School.
The winner is announced and presented with the scholarship during the homecoming post-game barbecue.
“At first I was really shocked and I even thought it was someone playing a joke on me,” said James of finding out that he was the scholarship recipient. “After realizing that I really won, I was really excited because the scholarship will help with my tuition and I won’t have to take out so many loans.”
Since the time of its inception, the scholarship has generated more than $57,000 in financial assistance to FAMU students.
