MURRAY, Ky. — The Murray State University office of multicultural affairs (OMA) will be awarding five $2,000 scholarships for the 2017–18 academic year. Recipients of the Johnnie Green Scholarship will be recognized at the 12th annual Diversity Achievement Awards Reception on April 7, 2017 in the Grand Ballroom of the Curris Center.
Through the office of multicultural affairs, the Emerging Scholars Institute (E.S.I.) is designed to address the needs of the University’s multicultural student population by paying attention specifically to their transitional experience from high school to college. The institute provides students with the help they need to gain and master the proper academic and leadership skills required for their chosen field and to reflect the characteristics of a Murray State University graduate.
Johnnie Green attended Murray State until 2002 when he took advantage of the National Student Exchange program and completed his chemistry and biology degree from Alabama A&M. He is commonly referred to as “the ghost” in Network Marketing because of his unique style of building. He has built organizations of more than 500,000 people in six continents and has developed hundreds of six-figure earners and several seven-figure earners.
“As a leader you have to believe in yourself when nobody believes in you. You must have vision, faith, and confidence. We all have some skill, something we are good at, and once we identify our weaknesses, we can turn them into strengths,” said Green.
