Floyd Family Mentoring Program scholarships awarded

  Melissa A. Gibson, an elementary education major from Pawleys Island, and Peter V. Phillips, a physical education major from Metuchen, N.J., received the Dalton and Linda Floyd Family Mentoring Program Scholarships for 2010-2011.  
Two Coastal Carolina University seniors have been awarded the Dalton and Linda Floyd Family Mentoring Program Scholarships for 2010-2011. Melissa A. Gibson, an elementary education major from Pawleys Island, and Peter V. Phillips, a physical education major from Metuchen, N.J., received the scholarships for being exemplary mentors.

Gibson began mentoring in January at Waccamaw Elementary School with two fifth grade girls as a service-learning component for health education for Primary/Elementary Students and Early Literacy Assessment. She visited her mentees more than 20 hours in 11 weekly visits, as well as hosting them at "A Day in the Life of a College Student," held recently on the CCU campus, an event that brought many of the children to campus for the first time.

Phillips became involved as a mentor in fall 2009 through the Elementary School Physical Education Pedagogy class and continued in spring 2010 through Middle School Physical Education Pedagogy class. He has been mentoring a fourth grade boy at Waccamaw Elementary School, visiting him more than 26 hours in 25 weekly visits at Waccamaw, as well as accompanying him on the group trip to Brookgreen Gardens in October and the visit to CCU in April.

As scholarship recipients, they will continue to mentor these students next year.

The Dalton and Linda Floyd Family Mentoring Program Scholarship is available for full time Coastal Carolina University students who have at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA, have demonstrated financial need, who have been exemplary mentors during the current year and commit to continue to serve as mentors the following year. It will eventually also be available for those students who have had a mentor from CCU.
