Four incoming students began first year classes at Appalachian State University as 2018–19 Fleming Scholars. They are Bailey Gardin, of Gastonia; Hudson Miller, of Charlotte; Cece Ramseur, of West Jefferson; and Ashelyn Stevens, of Harrisburg.
While at Appalachian, Stevens, a first-year student from Harrisburg, said she looks forward to "meeting new, diverse individuals who challenge my thoughts and beliefs, and push me to grow academically, physically, mentally and spiritually."
As a 2018–19 Fleming Scholar at Appalachian, she plans to major in management.
Recipients of the Dr. Willie C. Fleming Scholarship demonstrate a desire to promote cultural diversity and are from populations that are underrepresented on campus. All scholars are awarded full in-state tuition and fees that are renewable if academic requirements are met.
