Meet Maya Perriott – 2017 Scholarship Recipient

Looking back time has passed so quickly. Just over a year ago I started my senior year of high school and I thought I had a lot of time before I would start college.  Now, I’ve started classes at Columbus State University.

This past summer I spent time with my family and bonding more with my mom. Although I will miss the attention, I am thrilled to see what volunteer opportunities Columbus State has to offer me.  It is my lifelong passion to help and serve those in need. I am so excited about this new chapter in my life, where I will get the chance to pursue something that I am really passionate about.

Transitioning to college has given me the chance to network with people and challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone. College is a time to envision a world with unlimited potential. I am truly honored to have received this scholarship, and I cannot wait to see where life takes me.

    Ms. Maya,
    Congratulations on receipt of the Charles J. Harbin III Scholarship! Well done and well deserved. Charles would have enjoyed reading your submission as much as members of the selection panel did. In the months ahead, we hope to read more from you on this forum about your university and volunteer experiences. Stay curious about the world. Best wishes for a productive next year.
    Sincerely, Cheryl Conradis and Bill North, Charles’ mother and stepfather.
