Dean Emeritus Greg Simpson returned to Illinois State University this week to present the Greg and Mary Margaret Simpson Endowed Scholarship to Shelby Johnson. Simpson retired this past summer after seven years as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Johnson is a freshman actuarial science major from Morton, Illinois. While in high school, she was involved in several leadership clubs, the dance team, and orchestra, all while working three jobs! Shelby’s goal is to work at an insurance company as an actuary.
This is the first year of the Greg and Mary Margaret Simpson Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship was created for a high-achieving, incoming freshman, who is a first-time college student majoring in a discipline within the College of Arts and Sciences.
