Jocelyne LemusJocelyne Lemus
Asheboro, NC

A first-generation college student, Lemus said her scholarship has given her what seemed, at first, an impossible opportunity — the ability to pursue her dreams of higher education at App Sate.

An aspiring psychiatrist, Lemus is majoring in psychology with a concentration in health studies and aims to perform research in the mental health field.

At Asheboro High School, she served as senior class president on the Student Council and as an ambassador for Health Science Academy. She was also a varsity cheerleader.
