My name is Joshua M. Howse. I received the Shelita S. Murray scholarship in the spring of 2013 during the course of graduating from Oakland High School. This distinguished scholarship has assisted my educational goals at Middle Tennessee State University while majoring in Computer Information Systems. However, I have also graduated from barber school receiving a Master Barber license and I have completed a bartending school receiving a Mixology license.
At this time, I am a junior at MTSU and have altered my major to Liberal Studies in order to have the flexibility of selecting more courses that are interesting to me. The Shelita S. Murray is an important scholarship which has provided an opportunity for me to achieve my goals. I believe distinguish scholarships such as this one, gives people the opportunity to meet their educational goals. During the spring semester of 2017, I am planning to study abroad in Costa Rica before graduating in December 2017. Thank you and I hope that I’m representing the image of Shelita S. Murray well.
