Shelby Clark selected as 2019 Panhellenic Scholarship Recipient

Shelby was initiated into KU Sigma Chapter in 2016 and will be a fifth year Chemical Engineering student.  “As a member of Gamma Phi Beta for nearly four years, I have been able to witness the ideals and purposes of Gamma Phi – love, labor, learning, and loyalty – strengthen my college experience and lead me to success as a student at the University of Kansas. First and foremost, my desire to learn is what brought me to KU. Conveniently, Gamma Phi is a short 3-minute walk from the engineering school!  I knew early on I wanted to study chemical engineering and pre-med and am interested in oncology.  KU was one of few schools that offered a curriculum for this path. My ultimate dream would be accepted into a PhD/MD program so I may practice and also continue oncology research.”
