Brandy Martinez, Double major: social work and sociology

R. Dale and Frances Hughes Scholarship Recipient

Like many older, non-traditional students, Brandy Martinez is a self-starter. She has been out in the workforce and knows firsthand the benefits of an excellent education. Brandy has relished the opportunities she has found at Northampton, attending conferences in her future field; traveling to New Orleans for a service learning experience in helping the city rebuild; and maintaining a high enough GPA (3.85) to gain membership in the College's Honors Program and in the international honor society Phi Theta Kappa. Without scholarship support, she would not be able to take full advantage of all Northampton has to offer.
