Maddie Poshard Gives Up Scholarship

The Southern reports that Maddie Poshard, SIUC President Glenn Poshard’s granddaughter who won the merit scholarship that caused some controversy, is giving it up. She’s also, apparently, no longer eligible for any of the other scholarships she was offered (likely past the deadline for acceptance). Luckily Glenn Poshard has said he will pay for her tuition “all the way,” so at least we won’t lose what seems to be a very promising student because of financial reasons.
