First class of Emerald Eagle Scholars graduate

Ethan payne, Lauren Doxley, Juan Carlos Franco-EES Dec. 10 gradsIn the May 13-14 commencement ceremonies, Emerald Eagle Scholars from the 2007 first-full class will graduate and go on to realize their dreams. As of May 2011, more than 25 percent of the first full class will have earned a college degree.

This milestone was made possible through the Emerald Eagle Scholars program, which is available to Texas residents whose family adjusted gross income is $40,000 or less. The program has helped more than 1,900, high-achieving, academically talented, high school graduates with financial need realize their dream of a college education.

The student-success program emphasizes financial support, academic success and campus connection. These philosophical pillars provide students not just funding, but academic guidance and involvement in the university community.

Historically, UNT had a target of enrolling 400 new Emerald Eagle students each fall for the past four years. Next year, the university launches a plan to increase enrollment in the program by 25 percent, and now has a target of enrolling 500 new students this fall.
