A St. Lawrence sophomore won one of eight $1,000-scholarships in an essay contest sponsored by the University's time-payment plan sponsor.

Christopher M. Hungerford '04, of St. Albans, Vermont, recently won the scholarship. Created in honor of Rhode Island's distinguished statesman and champion of education, retired U.S. Senator Claiborne Pell, the Tuition Management Systems Scholarship has helped to pay past, present and future education expenses for 37 scholars over the past six years. Eight scholarship winners are chosen each year. Finalists in the contest submitted an essay discussing how Tuition Management Systems' education payment services helped provide the opportunity to pursue an education.

Hungerford is a biology major, and has participated in the golf team at St. Lawrence. He is a 2000 graduate of Bellows Free Academy in St. Albans and was on the Dean's List for the Fall 2001 semester.
