- April Johnson, Gamma Sigma Alpha Scholarship Recipient 2010-2011
Gamma Sigma Alpha continues the tradition of rewarding our undergraduate members who pursue graduate degrees with scholarship opportunities. Six graduate school scholarships were awarded for the 2010-2011 academic year. April Johnson is the first student we will spotlight in this series, with the remaining five being highlighted on this site over the course of the year.
Johnson is a graduate of Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia where she was initiated into the Epsilon Rho chapter of Gamma Sigma Alpha. She studied Biology and is currently pursuing her Masters of Arts in Teaching, Science Education at the University of Georgia.
In addition to Gamma Sigma Alpha, Johnson was active in numerous organizations, including Alpha Gamma Delta, Omicron Delta Kappa, the Pre-Medical Student Association and the student judicial board. She was committed to community service, tutoring math and science as well as working as a volunteer at a local cancer center.
Johnson said, “Becoming Greek was one of the greatest decisions I made while I was an undergraduate student at Brenau University. Not only did this choice allow me to be a part of something grater than myself and allow me to make lifelong bonds with other women, but it really helped my academic performance.” Debbie Thompson, Director of the Center for Greek Life and Campus Traditions at Brenau University agreed and said, “April maintained a very high grade point average throughout her four years at Brenau. Her academic endeavors were always her top priority.”
Gamma Sigma Alpha believes in rewarding students who keep their priorities in line and maintain academic excellence while contributing to their fraternal communities. We are happy to support the dreams of April Johnson and wish her continued success!
