CHSS advisor gives stimulus check to benefit KSU students


KENNESAW, Ga. (Sep 2, 2020)Before her one-time stimulus payment from the U.S. government arrived in late spring, Kennesaw State alumna Ariel Walley already had decided that she wanted to give the extra money to someone in need.

An academic advisor in KSU’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Walley talks with numerous students each week, and when the pandemic hit in March, students were desperate to figure out how to continue school, graduate on time and financially survive.

So it wasn’t hard for her to make the decision to provide the gift to Kennesaw State to benefit students in need.

“When the pandemic hit, I had students blowing up my inbox, and I realized how detrimental this was for a lot of students,” she said. “Many have shared their struggles about classes and personal challenges and were just trying to figure out how to make it all work.”
