Cooperative Education Scholarship Awarded to Alan Martin. Alan Martin was awarded a $250.00 scholarship from the Cooperative Education Department on October 11th of this year! He was given his award by President Johnson-Hawkins and Coop Ed Director, Doug Marriott. The "Coop Ed" program allows students to earn college credit for structured work experience.
