Nelly Coming to Campus for Scholarship Presentation

April 2, 2013

Grammy award-winning artist Nelly will present two scholarships to local high school students at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12, at the Lindenwood House on the school’s St. Charles campus. This marks the fifth year for the event, which is sponsored by the university’s Black Student Union, Plaza Motors, and Nelly’s record label, Derrty Ent.

Lindenwood announced at Nelly’s Black and White Ball in St. Louis in 2008 that it would begin annually awarding two, four-year, full-tuition scholarships in partnership with the artist. Since then, Nelly has presented recipients with the awards during special presentations at the university.

Applications were distributed to all high schools in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. The opportunity was open to all incoming first-year students who met Lindenwood admission requirements and demonstrated academic success, leadership, and financial need. Applicants also submitted a 200-to 300-word essay describing their personal goals and aspirations for college and their plans for applying their education and talents in the future.

Following a thorough review of all submitted applications, Charles Fraction and Naa’na Wilson were selected as 2013-2014 award recipients by the Black and White Ball Scholarship Evaluation Committee.

Fraction currently attends Elsberry High School in Elsberry, Mo., and plans to major in graphic design at Lindenwood. Wilson attends Jennings High School in Jennings, Mo., and plans to study pre-veterinary science and biology at the university.
