Michaela Rummel, a junior music education major from Abilene, has been selected by McMurry University to receive the Dr. Sandra Harper Women’s Leadership Scholarship for the 2016-17 academic year.

The Dr. Sandra Harper Women’s Leadership Scholarship was established by women leaders in the Abilene area in honor of the inauguration of Dr. Sandra Harper as McMurry University’s 12th president and in recognition of the accomplishments of outstanding women leaders.  The $5,000 scholarship is awarded to a female student at McMurry who has excelled in the classroom and who has distinguished herself through service on campus and in the Abilene community.

Applicants were required to complete an application process and submit a 500-word essay regarding their interpretation of “Women Leading for the Greater Good.” 

Rummel has a 3.83 overall grade point average while being active on campus as secretary and assistant pledge mistress of Pi Delta Phi women’s social club, a tutor in the academic enrichment center and being a worship band assistant and youth sponsor at her church.

The scholarship is funded through proceeds from the annual Women’s Leadership Luncheon.
