This summer, 14 students pursuing the University of Missouri Honors certificate were named Cherng Summer Scholars. The program is supported by a gift from Andrew and Peggy Cherng and the Panda Charitable Foundation. One of the many Honors programs that the Cherng family supports, Cherng Summer Scholars receive a $7,000 award and access to a $1,000 project expense account.

“What I love about this program is that you get to create your own project,” said Faith Quist, a senior double major in journalism and international studies. “You aren’t picking from a list of topics and doing something that you may not have much of an interest in. Each of us have the freedom to explore our passion and make the projects our own.”

This year’s Scholars are:
  • Willow Amann, social work
  • Luke Annin, biochemistry
  • Margaret Beecher, biochemistry
  • Anvitha Boosani, biochemistry
  • Lorenzo Ceccon, biological sciences
  • Camryn Habben, biological sciences
  • Haley Hultz, psychology
  • James Long, psychology
  • Ashley Monks, biological sciences
  • Faith Quist, international studies and journalism
  • Audrey Shively, biological sciences
  • Lara Stefani, biochemistry
  • Rachel Weber, biochemistry
  • Michelle Woolridge, biological sciences and romance languages (Spanish)
