Student Trustee Liz Healy and Student Body President Taylor Russ accept the scholarship gift at a Student Senate meeting

Showing that sometimes leadership occurs behind the scenes, an anonymous donor has made a $40,000 gift to the Mustang Leader Scholarship Endowment Fund, with the first $6,500 scholarship to be awarded to a student for the 2007-08 academic year.

The fund “provides scholarships to undergraduate students whose leadership has made a tremendous impact on the SMU community,” says Arlene Manthey, development officer for the Division of Student Affairs.
