Chancellor Tom Gibson presents $7,000 tuition credit to UW-Stevens Point student Cortez Clark.

Like most college students, Cortez Clark is not an early riser. So when the UW-Stevens Point junior received an email last week summoning him to campus at 8:15 a.m. Friday, he thought it was a little early but he would try to make it happen.

“It was well worth it,” he said about the early start to his day.

Clark, of Janesville, was one of 70 University of Wisconsin System students who won a $7,000 tuition scholarship as part of a recently concluded COVID-19 vaccination campaign.
