MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – West Virginia University coxswain Sarah Cartwright has been awarded a Beta Gamma Sigma scholarship.

"Sarah is always working--working on her books, working on her coxing, working out, and simply 'working' to earn money for school. Rarely have I seen her sitting still for more than just a few moments, so I'm very pleased that someone who works so hard is receiving the accolades and award of the Beta Gamma Sigma scholarship,” says coach Jimmy King.

The scholarship is awarded each spring semester to the top student of each member university’s chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, the international honor society for business.

The scholarship is open to juniors, seniors and students pursing master’s degrees, with each chapter allowed to nominate a current chapter member, alumnus, or student who will be invited to become a member during the spring of the nominating year.

Through the scholarship program, Beta Gamma Sigma has helped more than 600 students, with more than $1 million awarded.
