ECU students selected for Moldin scholarship

Two rising juniors at East Carolina University were named recipients of the 2011-12 Moldin scholarship, which provides $2,000 annually for selected students in chemistry or biology.

Sarah Kinsley

Recipients are Sarah Howell Kinsley of Greenville, a chemistry major with a minor in biology and Hispanic studies, and Quan Nguyen of Los Angeles, Calif., a dual biology and chemistry major.

The scholarship requires a minimum 2.5 GPA and demonstrated financial need, and is renewable for the recipient’s senior year.

Kinsley received the scholarship in 2010-11 and was selected for renewal for 2011-12.

Kinsley is a chemistry tutor with the ECU Pirate Tutoring Center, an ECU Relay for Life participant and a member of the Student Pirate Club. She has been selected for the ECU Chancellor’s List, Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society, Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, Golden Key National Honor Society and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

“It feels great to be rewarded for my hard work,” Kinsley said.  “I am excited to be able to only work one job next semester and be able to focus more on my last two semesters as an undergraduate.”

Nguyen begins his junior year this fall. He is a member of the Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Honor Society and the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and an active participant with the pre-dental honor society, Delta Delta Sigma. He volunteers frequently at the N.C. Missions of Mercy dental clinics and tutors high school-level math and science students.

Quan Nguyen

“I feel amazing to have been chosen for this scholarship,” Nguyen said. “I know it’s a prestigious honor, and I can not wait to uphold that honor in a true pirate fashion.”

The scholarship was established in 2006 by ECU alumni Richard and Nancy Moldin of Wilmington. Richard Moldin, an employee of Metrics in Greenville, earned a bachelor of science and master of science in chemistry from ECU in 1970 and 1973, respectively. He earned a master of business administration from ECU in 1976. Nancy Moldin is a 1973 ECU graduate with a bachelor of music degree in music education.
