  • SAU announces 2019 Hallman Scholarship inductees

    The Southern Arkansas University Hallman Scholarship has been awarded to two inspiring young women who will be incoming freshmen this fall in the SAU College of Science and Engineering.

    The Hallman Scholarship is funded through the SAU Foundation and provides scholarships for incoming freshmen women in the sciences. The total scholarship amounts are based on ACT scores and other aid. The 2019 inductees are Macee Lyons of Bradley, Arkansas, and Mikayla Peterson of Magnolia, Arkansas.

    Lyons is a graduate of Bradley High School. She plans to obtain a degree in Biology from SAU. She has a GPA of 4.0 and has worked hard to pursue a degree in the medical field.

    “I knew that I wanted to do something either with animals or people,” she said, “and I knew that my grades and ACT scores were very important. I have worked hard to maintain a 4.0, as well as to achieve a high ACT score. Hard work, a little sweat, and even a few tears have gone into the accomplishments I am fortunate to have today.” (more…)
