Scholar Spotlight: Grace Abernathy
Spotlight Scholar

Grace Abernathy is a Junior at USA and is the recipient of a Freshman Admission Scholarship and USA Freshman Leadership Scholarship. When asked why she loves the University of South Alabama, Grace said: "I fell in love with South the minute I stepped on campus - our University is absolutely gorgeous, and the people here are so genuine. South gives students the opportunity to truly discover who they are; it has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and get involved in any and every capacity that I can. South is truly the best university in the South, and I am so thankful for the friends, memories, and opportunities it has given me! "
