JBU Student Wins National Alpha Chi Scholarship
Siloam Springs, Ark (May 8, 2002) — The National Council of Alpha Chi recently announced that John Brown University student Monique Ingalls is a recipient of the Alfred H. Nolle Scholarship.
The Nolle Scholarship will award Ingalls with $1,500 to continue her undergraduate education in fall 2002 at John Brown University. Ingalls was one of 10 students nationwide who won the Nolle Scholarship for scholarly papers they entered into the competition.
“I am very pleased with Monique's winning the Nolle Scholarship as a representative JBU's chapter of Alpha Chi,” said Dr. Shirley Forbes Thomas, Director of the JBU Honors Scholars Program. “The paper that she entered into competition was the honors thesis that she completed for the JBU Honors Scholars Program under the sponsorship of Drs. Jan Wubbena and Linda Beckman, professors in the JBU department of music. Her scholarship and writing set the standard for others.”
Ingalls is a senior at JBU, where she is pursuing a degree in music. Ingalls is a member of the Honors Scholars Program and the Alpha Chi chapter at JBU. She is the daughter of George and Rhonda Harris of Vilonia, Ark.
For the last seven years, the JBU’s Alpha Chi chapter has been named a “Star Chapter” of the national Alpha Chi honor society. This places JBU in the top ten percent of the society’s 300 chapters. In order to be a member of Alpha Chi, university students must place academically in the top ten percent of the juniors and seniors at their university.
John Brown University is a private university with an enrollment of over 1,600 students from 45 states and 33 countries. JBU is a member of the Arkansas Independent Colleges and Universities as well as the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
