Walsh College announces DeRoy Scholarship recipients

September 13, 2021
TROY, Mich., Sept. 13, 2021 — Walsh has announced the 2021 recipients of the DeRoy Testamentary Scholarship, Cameron Anderson of Macomb and Julia Cousino of Waterford. The full academic scholarship is funded by the DeRoy Testamentary Foundation, named for its founder, renowned philanthropist, automotive businessperson and community leader Helen L. DeRoy.

Anderson is a Macomb Community College transfer student working towards a bachelor of business administration in marketing. Cousino, an aspiring CPA, transferred from Oakland Community College and is pursuing a bachelor of accountancy at Walsh.

“Earning the DeRoy Testamentary Foundation scholarship means the world to me. Words cannot describe how appreciative and thankful I am to have been selected,” said Anderson.

“My parents warned me about the dangers of student loans from a young age. Because of them, I’ve been determined to earn my degree with as little debt as possible. With this scholarship, the financial burden is lifted, and I can be assured I’ll achieve my goals debt-free,” said Cousino.

The DeRoy Testamentary Foundation provides funding support for programs and projects that improve the quality of life and well-being of individuals in metro Detroit.
