Arkansas Tech University student Amanda Condon has been selected as a finalist for a 2017 Truman Scholarship through the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation.

Condon was among four Arkansans and 199 university and college students from around the United States who advanced to the finalist stage in the competitive scholarship application. She will travel to Nashville, Tenn., for a finalist interview during the month of March. The 2017 class of Truman Scholars will be announced on April 21.

According to its website, the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation "supports the graduate education and professional development of outstanding young people committed to public service leadership" as a memorial to the 33rd president of the United States.

Condon, a junior from Texarkana, is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in emergency management from Arkansas Tech through distance learning. She is on pace to graduate in May 2018.

Her future goals include earning a Master of Science degree in emergency management and homeland security from ATU with an eye toward a career with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
