Colin Sullivan of Havana has been awarded the Bonnie Stine SRCFA Scholarship for $500 for the 2021-2022 academic year. Currently in his second year at Spoon River College, he plans to transfer to the University of Illinois Springfield to major in psychology with an end goal of being a clinical psychologist.

“The spring semester had me stressed on whether or not I would be able to afford to keep going while I waited for my loan disbursements. I’m very grateful for this scholarship,” Sullivan said.

Sullivan is taking online as well as in-person classes at the Spoon River College Havana Center, and is a member of Phi Theta Kappa. He currently works at Grandpa’s Restaurant and County Market.

“Spoon River College, to some, is just a stepping stone to a greater educational experience and to others the difference between having an education or not. This college is more than just an educational center, it is the very foundation to my education and many others around me. The opportunities available to us, through this college, are enormous,” said Sullivan.
