QUINCY — Three incoming students at Quincy University have been awarded the Presidential Scholarship, the most prestigious academic scholarship offered to undergraduate students at QU.

The newest recipients are Kayla Flange of Belleville, Mich., Madison Hester of Golden and Grace Welch of Camp Point.

“We are delighted to welcome these three accomplished Presidential Scholars to Quincy University,” QU President Brian McGee said in a press release. “These outstanding new students will be successful scholars and leaders in the classroom, the laboratory and the local community. We are eager for them to take their place in Quincy as part of our next generation of servant-leaders.”

“I am incredibly honored and grateful to have been awarded the Quincy University Presidential Scholarship,” Hester said. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication I have invested in my education.

“I could not afford to attend Quincy University without this scholarship, so I am extremely grateful to God and the school for granting me this honor,” Flange said. “Thank you so much.”
