Kneebone ‘Born Reddie’ scholarship awarded at HSU

Michael Ankton-Evans, an education major from Arkadelphia, and Kayla Fite, a biology major from Newport received the scholarship. Each recipient earned a $500 award based on outstanding campus involvement, a commitment to fostering a welcome and inclusive campus for all students, and service to the university community.

The scholarship was established through the Henderson State University Foundation in 2020 by friends and family in honor of Elaine Kneebone, the former HSU Acting President and General Counsel.

Kneebone met her scholarship recipients at the HSU Foundation’s annual scholarship reception held last month. “I was immensely humbled and honored that my friends and family established a scholarship in my name at my beloved alma mater,” Kneebone said. “I am so pleased to support Kayla on her path to becoming a physician’s assistant and Mike as he aims to be an educator and leader in our community. I am very grateful that my scholarship is helping these remarkable and deserving Reddies pursue their dreams!”
