Courtney Wieberg receives UPS Scholarship

Courtney Wieberg of Rush Hill, Mo., was the recipient of the UPS
Scholarship from Missouri Colleges Fund (MCF) during her senior year at William
Woods University. Wieberg recently graduated with a degree in elementary education
with concentrations in speech and theatre.

Wieberg was a first-generation college student and wears this
title proudly. Growing up in a middle-class, blue-collar family taught her to
work for what you want and for what you believe in. Being the oldest of three
children, Wieberg has always strived to be a good role model.
At William Woods, Wieberg has been a part of the cheerleading
team and traveled to places such as Germany, Czech Republic and Poland with
WWU. After working for campus phonathon, Wieberg was promoted to supervisor and
learned how to manage a group of students and work with alumni. She also served
as a student worker in the financial services office.
Wieberg plans to find a job in the education field and
further her own education by obtaining a master’s degree.
