Meet our NSCS Scholar of the Week, Octavia Traylor! Octavia is completing her first year at Strayer University where she majors in business administration.

As a member of NSCS, Octavia values the ability to easily engage with her fellow chapter members. “So far I love the experience of applying for scholarships and how the chapter president responds in a timely fashion. Joining the NSCS has been a smooth sailing ride so far,” said Octavia. “I love all the communication, the posts, and discussions and how everyone is so engaging and helpful. I love how the president is involved and keep the students posted on essential topics and date.”

On top of being a NSCS scholar, Octavia has a busy personal and professional life. “I am a single mother of two small children, and I work full-time as an Administrative specialist. Going back to school has been a challenge, but so far I have managed to overcome every problem,” said Octavia.

Octavia has been able to maintain a 4.0 GPA despite her busy schedule. In fact, she is also working on a book and currently seeking publishers.

For being a dedicated NSCS member, a high achiever, and a well-rounded student and person, Octavia is our Scholar of the Week!
