Devan Redington named newest recipient

Devan RedingtonDevan Redington is the newest recipient of the Shelli Herman Leadership and Achievement Scholarship.

The most recent recipient of the Shelli Herman Leadership and Achievement Scholarship, featured in the Fall 2011 Horizon, is Devan Redington, who recently completed her junior year as a business student at Wichita State.

Although she is currently undecided about whether to pursue accounting, economics or finance, Redington says she knows business is the right path. Her future plans include graduate school for a master’s in business administration.

An active student on campus, Redington was primarily chosen due to her involvement in Dean’s Scholars and other campus organizations, according to Sheelu Surender, associate director of scholarships.

Redington said after a few campus visits and recruitment events, she was ready to pursue her admission to Wichita State.

“I felt like an actual person here, not just another prospective student,” Redington said.

Scholarships have been the reason she has become extremely involved on campus, she said.

“Scholarships have allowed me to focus on my academics and extracurricular activities without having to worry about how I am going to pay for tuition,” Redington said. “I am so thankful for all of the scholarships I have received while at WSU.”
