Whiz Kid:Knight Gets Grant and Scholarship
A teacher's daughter is off to the University of New Hampshire.
Name: Heather Knight, 18
School: University of New Hampshire
Accomplishment: Awarded Academic Scholarship
Key to Awesomeness: Since I was young I knew I wanted to go to college, I guess that’s what happens when your mother is a teacher! I knew I wanted to stay relatively close to home and I love the mountains in New Hampshire, so I decided that UNH had much to offer to both my educational and personal life. Here I am, so close to starting one of the most exciting parts of my life, and I cannot wait!
During my time at Barnstable High School, I worked hard for my good grades and I started preparing myself for higher education. I always had amazing support from both my parents and teachers, and that gave me the extra push to do well in school.
The University of New Hampshire recognized my efforts in school and I was admitted to the Whittemore School of Business and Economics (WSBE) along with the award of a tuition grant and academic scholarship from the university. I will be majoring in Business Administration and plan to go for my Masters after my undergraduate studies are completed. I hope to someday work in Public Relations.
