Todd J. Redding Scholarship
For Todd Redding, Franklin College provided more than an educational foundation for the future. It provided a second chance. Mr. Redding transferred to Franklin College from a large university in another state. There, he felt lost in a sea of students. In an atmosphere where he didn't know his professors or classmates, and few of them knew him, Mr. Redding felt little accountability for his actions. In his sophomore year, however, he realized he was not benefiting from his college education. He sought out a smaller, more intimate college and discovered Franklin. The small, friendly campus provided Mr. Redding with the environment he needed to succeed. He focused on his studies and graduated in 1990. Mr. Redding went on to a successful business career, and he credits Franklin College. He and his parents set up the Todd J. Redding Scholarship to assist other students like Mr. Redding.
The Redding Scholarship is awarded to students transferring to Franklin College from another institution who do not qualify for an academic scholarship, but who demonstrate the potential for academic success. That potential for success will be determined by an examination of the student's academic record, including standardized test scores, and a personal interview with a college representative. Recipients must be enrolled full time at the college.
