Billy Washington

Student Spotlight

UCO freshman Billy Washington is pursuing a degree in early childhood education with a minor in dance. At UCO, Billy is already becoming a leader by establishing a student dance club his first year as a student. Last fall, Billy was in danger of not being able to reenroll in classes, but assistance from one of the UCO Foundation's unrestricted scholarship funds helped him return to UCO for a second semester.

"Without that scholarship, I wouldn't be here today. It definitely changed my life!"
