When she stepped foot for the first tour of Columbia College, she came home and said this is it for me. So today is kind of culmination of
that very first impression that she had of Columbia. Admissions Counselor: How’s it going Moberly High School? We have a student here, she won a full ride at Columbia College Magdalena Myles, Congratulations on a check for 109 thousand dollars. Magdalena: I know this will be good for my mom and I, especially. So just surprised more than anything, in shock. I kind of grew up around Columbia, but I wanted to go to a smaller school, but I loved the kind of community feel really more than anything. Robyn Myles: When I think about what
she’s done to deserve it I think about how hard she has worked I think that
sometimes she thinks that she’s been lucky. I certainly think that she has
been very fortunate, but I think you know the choice to work hard really has
been up to her and she’s made a really great choice to work hard throughout her school life. Magdalena: More than anything I want to thank my mom because I couldn’t get to get this point without her. I want to thank Sonda Stewart who is my DECA adviser, because she was really, she pulled me out of my shell. Because of her I’m not shy anymore. I was able to rock my interview and now I have a full ride scholarship. Robyn: Maggie, I’m so
proud of you, you can’t even begin to imagine. Congratulations sweetheart!
