Eades earns scholarship
Michael Eades of Urbanna, a freshman majoring in natural resources in the College of Natural Resources at Virginia Tech, has been awarded the Presidential Scholarship Initiative for the 2009-10 academic year.
For qualifying in-state students, the Presidential Scholarship Initiative is designed to complement all other aid options to make a Virginia Tech education available at no cost. Virginia Tech awards up to 50 scholarships through the initiative to undergraduates each year. To renew their scholarships students must maintain an adequate grade point average (GPA). The average GPA of the 49 students receiving scholarships this year is 3.85. The group averaged about 1,150 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test.
Eades is the son of Cathy and Mike Eades of Urbanna.
