Southeast Bulloch senior wins rare honor from GSU
Roger Allen Jr., now concluding his senior year at Southeast Bulloch High School, will be in rarified company this fall as a freshman 1906 Scholar at Georgia Southern University. Of the thousands of freshmen who will enroll at GSU for 2011-'12, only 150-175 will be part of the University Honors Program, and of those, only 11 were awarded the 1906 Scholarship, which is named for the founding year of the school that evolved into GSU. These scholarships cover the full cost of tuition, and for Georgia residents eligible for the HOPE scholarship, the 1906 Scholarship is added to HOPE, allowing the combination to cover further costs. Allen is the only Bulloch County resident to be awarded the scholarship as an incoming freshman this year.
