The Interdisciplinary nature of ICOA is sure to serve the University and North State community well. Coodination of research, teaching and service activities related to aging issues is long overdue. The passion and commitment of ICOA board members to serve seniors and include students in all aspects of the center inspired me to establish a scholarship for a student studying aging issues, with preference given to a first-generation college student such as myself, or a traditionally underrepresented student. Throughout my education I had many teachers, advisors, and mentors who were generous with their time, money, and expertise, all of which contributed to my success and allowed me to be in a position to assist others.
