Bill Kingery Outstanding Student Scholarship
The Bill Kingery Scholarship provides additional financial assistance to the most outstanding student employees within the department. Bill Kingery was the first Director of Campus Recreation, and he served the campus for 43 years before he retired in 2013; Mr. Kingery created the scholarship in an effort to continue supporting the student employees who are so valuable and essential to the department. One of the University of Mississippi’s core values is to provide the best and most accessible undergraduate education in the state of Mississippi. The Department of Campus Recreation contributes to this core value as the second largest student employer on campus, thereby enabling students to receive income to help cover their expenses while attending the university.
Campus Recreation top student employees receive this financial award based on merit and service to the department, and therefore the University; the students who are awarded this scholarship are notified at our annual Student Awards Banquet.
