Willett wins full-tuition scholarship to Olivet College
Mar 01, 2012

Hailey Willett, a senior from Leslie High School, has won a full-tuition scholarship to Olivet College as part of the first ever Global Citizen Honors Program (GCHP) Scholarship Competition, which was held Jan. 27 on campus.

Willett, who plans to study communications with a minor in music, competed among 60 incoming Olivet College freshmen during the event. Her essay, “For the Love of Detroit,” was chosen for this year’s top prize. The college also awarded $126,000 in additional scholarship money to competitors.

“Hailey is a truly amazing young woman,” said Maria Davis, Ph.D., provost and dean of the college. “We’re so pleased she has chosen Olivet College!”

Students were selected for the competition based on their academic standing. All of the competitors are high achieving, incoming freshmen who met specific grade point average and ACT score requirements.

During the event, students participated in an interview session with faculty and staff members, in addition to the essay writing competition. The program also included information about the GCHP and honors classes at Olivet; a question-and-answer session with President Steven M. Corey, Ph.D., and other college officials; and individualized visits with admissions and financial aid representatives.
