The 2019 Larry Stephenson Scholarship recipients named

The Larry Stephenson Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a student who demonstrates outstanding achievement in extracurricular activities in high school or at Morehead State University and who is dedicated to community service. This year, four students have been chosen as recipients: incoming freshmen, Josie Howard from Martin and Lincoln Rose from Louisa, and current Morehead State University students, Cameron Cook, a political science major from Stanton, and Alison Porter, veterinary science major from Oil Springs.  

Larry Stephenson had a passion for MSU students and their involvement in student activities and organizations. He embodied every aspect of student involvement as he himself was a student-athlete, fraternity member, and worked as the director of student housing, SGA advisor and dean of students during his career at MSU. The Larry Stephenson Memorial Scholarship was established in his memory.  

“The Larry Stephenson Scholarship is an important way to carry on the legacy of Larry’s dedication to MSU,” said Shannon Colvin, associate director of leadership, programming and inclusion. “In choosing the recipients of the award, the selection committee is intentional in choosing students that embody the spirit of service and dedication, particularly among students from the service region. Larry served MSU with a servant heart and we are happy to carry on the legacy with the scholarship recipients.” 

Four scholarships in the amount of $1,000 are awarded each year. Students can apply online at The application opens in the fall and closes around April 15.
