Faculty Scholarship Recipient
2012: Meet Conner Marshman
“My name is Connor Marshman, and I was privileged to receive the Faculty Scholarship from California University of Pennsylvania.
“I am from Pleasant Hills, Pa., and I completed my high school education at Thomas Jefferson High School.
“I am majoring in graphics and multimedia, and would like to minor in marketing or business. I also have an interest in joining the Art Club and Studio 224, but I would certainly not limit myself to these options.
“So far, I have found my major's coursework very engaging. The workload has been manageable and given me time to enjoy the many other activities the university offers.
“Receiving the Faculty Scholarship has been a true gift, because it has allowed me to focus on my time here at Cal U without financial distractions. With this burden eliminated, I can give hundred percent of my effort to my education and my experiences at the university.
“I cannot stress how thankful I am for the gracious faculty contributions to my education!”

“I am truly grateful to all of the faculty members for allowing me this wonderful opportunity.”
