Christian James Campbell has been awarded a $7,000 four-year Fraternal College Scholarship in a national competition with other students who are members of Modern Woodman of America. Modern Woodmen, a fraternal benefit society offering financial services, has local representatives and is based in Rock Island, Ill.

Campbell, the son of Kathy Miner Campbell and Dan Campbell of Eva, plans to use the scholarship to attend the University of South Alabama in Mobile.

Campbell is one of 36 regional scholarship winners chosen this year. Selection is based on students’ personal and academic achievement, including the results of the American College Testing Program or the Scholastic Aptitude Test. Qualities of leadership, character and extracurricular activities were judged.

During the past 40 years, Modern Woodman has committed millions of dollars in financial assistance to hundreds of students through its Fraternal Scholarship Program.

Applications for the 2013-2014 Scholarship Program will be taken in the fall of 2013.

Founded in 1883, as a fraternal benefit society, Modern Woodmen of America offers financial services and fraternal member benefits to individuals and families throughout the United States. Local Modern Woodmen representative Sammy Lee can be reached at 205-221-1041.
