  • Celia Bonner, of Turner, Jazmine McDonald, of Marvell, Madison McIntosh, of Lexa, and Celeste Sumler, of Poplar Grove, have been awarded the Great River Promise (GRP) Scholarship at Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas (PCCUA). Both Bonner and McIntosh are enrolled in general education classes, while McDonald and Sumler are majoring in nursing and early childhood, respectively. PCCUA continues to fulfill an important promise to area students, pledging that if you want a college education, you can have one at PCCUA! The GRP is an innovative educational initiative that provides gap scholarship funding for any Phillips County high school graduate to attend PCCUA, tuition and mandatory fees free. To qualify for this unique scholarship opportunity, students must attend four years at an Arkansas County or Phillips County high school, graduate with a high school diploma (beginning with 2010 graduates), achieve attendance requirements for four years of high school, have no drug or DUI offenses, and exhaust all other scholarship and financial aid programs first (deadline for State of Arkansas scholarships is June 1). Applicants must also enroll in the fall semester following high school graduation, be accepted as a PCCUA student, and complete a PCCUA scholarship application. 
 Once at PCCUA, recipients must enroll for at least 12 credit hours per semester the first year and enroll in 15 credit hours per semester the second year, successfully complete at least 67 percent of all credit hours attempted each semester, and maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA.
