Findley receives UPS Scholarship from Missouri Colleges Fund

Alonzo Findley, a William Woods University student from Louisiana,
Mo., is the recipient of a scholarship from Missouri Colleges Fund (MCF) in
recognition of his achievements at WWU.

Money for the$2,400 scholarship came from UPS, which donated money
to underwrite scholarships at each of the 17 MCF-member colleges and
Findley and his three brothers were raised by their
grandparents, Bob and Jonilyn Findley, who he says provided him with love and
“If it was not for my grandparents and my mom, I do not know
what type of man I would be today,” said Findley.
Findley added, “With the help of the
UPS scholarship I am the first of my family to go to college. This will help me
continue my education at William Woods University while obtaining an exercise
science degree, a sports management degree, along with a minor in business
administration.  With my education I hope
to accomplish being a personal trainer.”
A member of the WWU track and field
team, Findley captured the 2012 American Midwest Conference Outdoor shot
put individual title, adding a second title in the discus. He also was fourth
in the javelin.
“I have acquired many skills so far, but
I know there are many more to go,” Findley said. “Being at William
Woods has taught me how to work with schedules, students, discipline, and being
a leader.”
