Buies Creek, N.C.-Riley Dean Bowers of Stuart, Va., has received the Full Tuition Scholarship from Campbell University. Bowers plans to major in pre-pharmacy.
A graduate of Patrick County High School, Bowers made All District and All Region in football. He was also a member of the baseball team, the Senior Beta Club, the Future Business Leaders of America, the Varsity Club and the yearbook staff.
Bowers said he applied for the Campbell scholarship because of the condition of the economy, but he didn't expect to win even though he graduated third in his high school class.
"I knew the scholarship would help out, especially in this slow economy," he said. "But I was amazed and in shock when Campbell called me with the news that I had won. My parents were really excited too."
Bowers is the son of Tim and Annette Bowers. He has a sister, Whitney.
