SPRINGFIELD, Mo., April 18, 2017 — Seven Drury students have been selected to receive $2,000 scholarships from the C.W. Titus Foundation to study French over the summer at the Institut de Touraine in Tours, France. Each student will live with a French host family and must study 22.5 hours of French per week for four weeks.
Since 2008, the C.W. Titus Foundation has supported 60 Drury students studying foreign language abroad for a total of $135,000. This year’s recipients include Erica Cervantes, Charles Terrana, Lindsay Duede, Grace Elbon, Madeline Smith, Mallory Pinson, and Christina Faoro. The average GPA of the recipients is 3.8.
The students will talk about their experiences abroad during presentations next fall at the Schweitzer Brentwood Branch Library as part of the library’s Travelogue series.
