When Happyson Kaunda Jr. was looking at colleges in the United States, Florida Southern was a no-brainer. During a visit to campus, Happyson had the chance to sit in on classes and was amazed at the amount of engagement between students and professors.
“Fueled by discussions and presentations, the small class sizes at FSC made learning very interactive,” said Happyson. “The thought-stimulating conversations and personal chatter was simply unmatched.”
In addition to the inspiring experience he had on campus, Happyson is also encouraged that his McClurg Scholarship is going to set him on the course to his life’s aspiration. As an Honors student, he is equipped with the necessary skill sets to be successful in his field of study, computer science. His future goal is to work for a big tech company like Apple or Google or to establish a tech start-up in his home city of Luanshya, to help his fellow countrymen.
“Grateful, I believe, is the word that expresses how I feel about the McClurg Scholarship.” C.V. McClurg was a well-respected member of the Lakeland community and
