CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa recently awarded the Sperry Scholarship to Matthew Hackman, a freshman business management administration major from Fort Atkinson.

The scholarship, funded through the UNI Foundation, is awarded annually to any incoming or current student, and is based on financial need, scholastic achievement, leadership and citizenship skills, extracurricular activities and community service.

Hackman, the son of John and Sue Hackman, is a graduate of Turkey Valley High School in Jackson Junction, where he was a member of the National Honor Society. He also participated on five sports teams and worked with first-and second-grade students during his senior year in the district's program, 'Students Educating Students' (SES).

The Sperry scholarship covers tuition, fees, room and board and is renewable for up to four years. The scholarship is valued at $8,758 for the 2002-2003 school year.
