Two Willamette Students Named National Kemper Scholars

For the fourth year in a row, the James S. Kemper Foundation has selected two Willamette students for the prestigious Kemper Scholars Program, which will prepare them for leadership and service, especially in the fields of administration and business.

RoseAnn Glade '12 and Erika Mosqueda '12 were selected on the basis of academic excellence, character, and leadership and service experience. They will receive annual scholarships of up to $8,000 for their remaining three years of college, along with ongoing mentoring. They also will receive $6,500 stipends for work as interns at major not-for-profit organizations in Chicago during the summer after their sophomore year, and grants from $2,000-$6,000 to support an internship the following summer at a for-profit organization of their choice.

Glade is interested in anthropology, sociology and American ethnic studies. She is chair of the Kaneko Heritage Committee, which helps Tokyo International University of America students integrate into the Willamette community. Glade is in three multicultural student organizations - Hawaii Club, AZN and Alianza - and she danced and worked on the country store at the student-sponsored lu'au this spring.

Mosqueda is focusing on French, Spanish and American ethnic studies, and plans to go into international fashion marketing. She also is involved with Hawaii Club and AZN, and she is the treasurer and historian for Alianza. In August she will be a leader for Ohana, a multicultural-focused program that is part of the Jump Start pre-Opening Days orientation for new students.

Willamette is one of 15 small colleges that can nominate students to be Kemper Scholars.
