2016 Alumni Scholarship Recipients

Over the years, gifts from Humboldt State's alumni have created the Alumni Association Scholarship. Every semester full-time students are selected by a committee of Humboldt State alumni to receive the scholarship. Here are the spring 2016 recipients:

Grace Douglass

As a student in the International Studies program, Grace Douglass is following her grandmother’s path in becoming part of the HSU community. Through volunteer work with the YES Program and serving with Associated Students, Douglass supports students from the elementary school level to her fellow classmates. She’s also part of the MultiCultural Center and the Learning Center. Recently, she became part of the Associated Students Lobby Corps and is a student ambassador in the Center for International Programs.

Jacqueline R. Farrington

While majoring in Geography and Anthropology, Jacqueline Farrington says Humboldt has become a home, school, and community. She values the unique perspectives her classmates offer and values the support and guidance HSU’s alumni provide.

Chantry Johnson

Chantry Johnson is looking forward following her grandfather’s footsteps by earning a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. As a seventh generation Humboldt County resident, Johnson feels deeply connected to the area. She’s volunteered with Hospice of Humboldt and worked as a certified nursing assistant in local nursing facilities. She’s currently an intern with St. Joseph’s Hospital’s cancer support program. After graduating, Johnson plans to earn a master’s degree in social work, focusing on gerontology.

Morgan Saveliff

Morgan Saveliff makes the most of her time at HSU by taking advantage of all that campus has to offer. She has been a volunteer with the Youth Education Services (YES) Study Buddies program, and she participates in Center Activities’ outdoor offerings. As a Sociology major, Saveliff knows the importance of learning about new cultures and plans to study in Spain this summer with the Spanish language program.

Winter Wishes

Happy Holidays with Forever Humboldt

Staff, faculty, and community members, as well as the entire HSU Women’s Basketball team, pitched in to make this year’s Winter Wishes program a success. In total, 100 local children had their holiday wishes fulfilled through the efforts of dedicated volunteers. Thanks for making 2015 a great year for Winter Wishes!

Through Winter Wishes staff, faculty, and student sponsors buy gifts for local underprivileged youth, including children of HSU parents who are in need. This effort started with retired HSU employee, Bill Clem.
