Student Perspective

Cady Inabinett

“I think a lot of times when people think of the impact scholarships have, it’s purely in numbers. But it makes me feel confident, like I have people rooting for me,” said Inabinett. “It makes me feel less impostor syndrome when I go into my classes and say I want to go to a Ph.D. program. It reminds me there are people out there who see the work I do, and say ‘Yeah, you can do whatever you put your mind to.’” — Cady Inabinett, English major and scholarship recipient
