October 6: Last day to withdraw (1st mini term)
October 6, 2020
Wallace Community College English major Grace Poynter was among 456 finalists this year for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship. Grace was one of two selected from Alabama.
While in school, Poynter worked as a part-time gymnastics coach and part-time data entry clerk. During her time at Wallace, she was the president of Wallace’s Sigma Kappa Delta chapter, a Rotaract Club member, and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society member.
“Before I came to Wallace, I had no goals for my life and was hoping for the best. I never expected to meet faculty who care so much about my success – not only as a student, but as a person. Wallace gave me goals to set and helped me achieve them. Without Wallace, I would not have strived to be the best I can be.”
“Because of Wallace, I have the confidence to believe that I can succeed.”
She plans to pursue a degree in secondary English education after transferring to Samford University. Grace received Samford’s Crosland Scholarship and a Phi Theta Scholarship.
