CU students named Brad Henry International Scholars

Cameron University students Megan Law, a junior from Duncan, and Gilberto Nunez, Jr., a junior from Lawton, have been designated as Brad Henry International Scholars by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Each will receive an $11,500 stipend that will be utilized for study at Swansea University in Swansea, Wales, during the Fall 2012 semester.

“Educational travel, particularly a full semester overseas, creates an incredible learning experience for our students,” says Dr. John McArthur, Provost. “I am grateful to the State Regents and this scholarship program for providing this opportunity to our students.”

A business administration major, Law hopes one day to open her own business. “I see this as a superb opportunity to enrich my understanding and broaden my perspective of international business and marketing,” she wrote in her application.

Nunez is an English major who plans to pursue a doctorate. “I believe that success is measured in one’s ability to communicate in the professional world, and as such, I consider it extremely important to be able to teach these skills to other university students,” he wrote. “This can only be done with an intimate understanding of the English language…The Brad Henry Scholarship would…support my theory that by working hard, you can succeed at anything you wish.”

The Brad Henry International Scholarship and Semester of Study Abroad program was launched in 2008 by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
