Chatfield College Student Receives National Catholic Education Association Scholarship In Honor of Robert A. Conway
October 5th, 2012
Chatfield College in Cincinnati and St. Martin, OH is pleased to announce that Kennedy Heights resident Joseph Anderson has been awarded the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) Seton Award Scholarship, in honor of Seton Award recipient Robert A. Conway.
Bob Conway received the Elizabeth A. Seton Award on Oct. 1 in Washington, D.C. He is the first Cincinnatian to receive this award, presented annually to exemplary individuals whose support and service impacts Catholic education. In addition to the Seton Award, all Seton honorees have a scholarship presented in their honor to a deserving Catholic school student in the local community.
Anderson was also honored at the Award Ceremony on Oct. 1. He and his father, Ken, were flown to Washington DC to accept the scholarship from NCEA.
“I am grateful and appreciative to be selected as the 2012 NCEA Seton Scholar in honor of Mr. Bob Conway,” said Anderson. “I thank the NCEA, Mr. Conway and his family for this scholarship and for the confidence that they have placed in me.”
Anderson is a 2010 graduate of Purcell Marian High School and is currently enrolled at the Chatfield College Findlay Market campus. He began at Chatfield College during the summer 2012 session and achieved a 4.0 GPA.
In addition to being a full-time student at Chatfield, Anderson works two jobs as a cashier at Dick's Sporting Goods and Kroger. His goal is to complete his Associate Degree at Chatfield and finish the last two years of his bachelor's degree at Xavier University. He plans to continue his education by going to law school. His ultimate career goal is to become a judge and use his position to help his family and serve his community. He plans to be hands-on with community organizations to make sure that children have access to a good education.
“I understand that children are the future and we as adults need to guide and educate them, not only to better themselves, but to help make the world a better place,” said Anderson.
Anderson says that he believes that in order to be successful in the world, education is a key element to success. “With my education, I hope to benefit those who do not have an education, and pass my knowledge on to those who want to learn. I want to stand out and make a difference in my community.”
