B Sherrod Scholars Curtis King: Curtis King transferred to ACU in the fall of 1981 after two years at Southwestern Christian College. He was a managementfmarketing major from Mound Bayou, Miss. At Southwestern, Curtis served as Student Senate presi- dent and worked on the yearbook staff. He also was voted second runnerup for Mr. Southwestern Christian College. Curtis said. "I came in Cro ACUD and refused to simply sit back and be overwhelmed by the number of people." Southwestern had a student body of approximately 300 students. When Curtis came to ACU he said he wanted to get in- volved. He became a member of the Student Foundation and of Al ha Chi national honor society. He also was a member ofp the Cultural Excellence Organization. "To be involved," Curtis said, "is to put yourself out of your own shell and interact in whatever way you can." Get- ting an education, he said, is more than simply learning what's in the books. College is a unique opportunity," said Curtis. "It helps to round you as a person. You get some leadership experience and you get a chance to see how organizations are run." "When Curtis first started attending ACU, he said he was excited. "When I went into a classroom, rather than taking a back seat, I'd sit as close to the front as I could, which in most cases I'd be in the front of the class. And I just got in- volved in the learning process." And the fruits of his labor were apparent. He was listed on the Dean's Honor Roll his first two semesters. He was active in several campus organizations, worked as a camp counselor for ACU's summer camp Kadesh and was employed as a stu- dent assistant in the computer lab. Sharon Johnston: "Involvement at school just means getting out and doing extra things that interest you," said Sharon Johnston, a finance major from Bedford. Sharon said she believed that being involved was essential to being happy while at college. She said, "It gives you an opportunity to meet other people and be with friends." "I pretty much got involved in whatever I wanted to," she said, "but at the same time I have always put grades and stu- dying first." Sharon became involved in Senate her senior year by serv- ing as secretary for her senior class. She was a member of Student Foundation and Alpha Chi national honor society and served as treasurer for Kojo Kai social club. Sharon said, "I'd like to think that through Senate I've performed a service through all the activities that we do: with the major entertainment, with the educational programs we brought to school and then with the class activities that we've provided. "I've just tried to make people enjoy it here as much as I do. Ithink that everybody needs to enjoy it here," she said. Sharon said she believed that ACU has a good balance of academics and extracurricular activities. "Part of coming to college is as much learning how to get along with people as it is learning things from the books." Academics, along with extracurricular activities, were a part of Sharon's life while at ACU. And yet, because she took summer classes at home, she was able to find a balance between the two that allowed her to graduate from college after only three years. 380fSherrod Sherrod Scholars
