ASU students shoot hoops for scholarship

Posted by: John Shryock - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Alabama State University Student Government Association is sponsoring a random drawing and contest at Saturday's basketball game against Texas Southern University, during which two lucky ASU students will have the chance to win a $500 scholarship. 

The SGA is conducting this contest in an effort to combat the economic pressures of today, said Stanley Giles, ASU's SGA president. He said the SGA has decided to provide a scholarship opportunity to the students of ASU for exhibiting that "Ole Bama State Spirit." 

At Saturday's basketball game, two random seat numbers in the student section will be drawn and two lucky student contestants will have the opportunity to shoot five basketballs. If the contestant makes at least one ball, he or she will receive the $500 ASU scholarship from the SGA. 

"This scholarship is designed to encourage students to participate in campus life and reward them for showing support to their fellow Hornets," Giles said.

 "It is that 'Ole Bama State Spirit' that has sustained this university since its birth in 1867, and it is that same spirit that will carry us on to even greater heights." 

For more information on the contest, contact Stanley Giles at 229-4483 or 220-5287.
