The Centre College board of trustees reviewed a strong year in student recruitment and approved scholarships and appointments Friday.
Centre ended the 2002-03 academic year with 1,409 freshman applications, a record number for the school. That yielded a strong freshman class with 286 new students.
Centre received gifts and grants totaling more than $11 million in the past year. The following named scholarships were approved:
* The Thomas L. Hensley Scholarship, established by gifts in his memory from his friends. This scholarship will be awarded to full-time students at Centre who are from eastern Kentucky and who have demonstrated financial need.
* The Lawrence F. Woboril Scholarship, established in his memory by a bequest from his wife. It will be awarded to worthy students who are English majors, with preference to those who intend to pursue a career in journalism.
