Raquelle Roulette earns Academic All-Star Scholarship

June 11, 2021

UA-PTC’s 2021 Academic All-Star Scholarship recipient is Raquelle Roulette. The scholarship recognizes students who have achieved outstanding academic performance and who have demonstrated superior service to UA - Pulaski Technical College and the community.

Ms. Raquelle Roulette is a Sophomore at UA - Pulaski Tech and is pursuing an Associate of Science in Business and a Certificate of Proficiency in Entrepreneurship. She intends to transfer to University of Arkansas at Fayetteville to further her education. Dedicated to the belief that we should always aspire to leave things better than we found them, she is driven to causes that empower others. With the attainment of her education, she aspires to own and operate her own non-profit organization.

She has received the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders Scholarship and a Rotary Club Scholarship. She is a Phi Theta Kappa member, a Student Ambassador, work-study for Career Pathways, recruitment and retention committee member, and participates in the mascot search and finance clubs. She also has a cumulative 4.0 grade point average and is on the Chancellor’s and Deans Lists for academic excellence.

She is a proud mother who is motivated by her three children: 5-year-old Henry, 3-year-old Anastasia, and 1-year-old Adonis.

Touched by the true story of a living role model Dr. Tererai Trent, Raquelle resonates with her statement that, "it's about how our personal goals are tied to the greater good that is the secret to our success."

"It is hard to teach love, but we can give it." Raquelle said, "There is true fulfillment in personal connection and service to others. We can always do our part to make a difference, however small, and maybe even create a ripple effect leading others to do the same."

Recipients of the Academic All-Star Scholarship receive a $1500 scholarship for up to two semesters at UA - Pulaski Technical College. Ms. Roulette will be recognized at the Arkansas Community Colleges annual meeting in October. Winners are selected based on personal interviews, grade point average, demonstrated involvement in campus and community activities, intent to transfer to an Arkansas four-year university upon associate degree completion, and meeting other eligibility requirements.
