Fall 2014: Tia James, University Of Missouri-Columbia 

Congratulations to Tia James, winner of the Fall 2014 'Hit the Books' Scholarship!

Congratulations, Tia!

Tia wrote us a letter regarding his award:

First, I would like to say that I am very thankful to CoffeeForLess for providing this scholarship to me. Trying to pay for college can be stressful for many students and I think that it’s great that Coffee for Less supports students and encourages them to succeed in their education.

I am studying Strategic Communications at the Missouri School of Journalism; one of the best journalism schools in the country so I have definitely been “hitting the books” to maintain a good G.P.A. and to make sure that I succeed in my classes. Since I am taking a lot of journalism classes, this scholarship would help me purchase both the books and software that I need for these classes instead of always having to borrow someone’s book or using someone else’s computer. One day I hope to work for an event planning or advertising agency so now I am learning all of the skills that I need to possess in order for me to excel.

When I am not in class, I am usually working at our Campus Career Center, helping others perfect their resumes and cover letters, and giving them job interview tips. I have a pretty busy schedule but a cup of tea or coffee in the morning helps me relax and put my thoughts together.

Thanks again!

Tia James
