Mary Hutchings wins a full-tuition scholarship with Liberty University Online.

During the 2011 Women of Faith tour, thousands of women inquired to learn more about Liberty University Online. One lucky woman who attended these faith-based, nationwide live events was selected from among the rest to receive a full-tuition scholarship to Liberty Online.

Mary Hutchings from Thompson Falls, Mont. is the winner of the Women of Faith full-tuition scholarship. Friday, Dec. 16, Hutchings was greeted by a call from Liberty Online’s Admissions team with this exciting news.

“This is the highlight of our morning, being able to call you and let you know that you are our winner,” Executive Director of Admissions Steve Peterson said. “We know it will be a blessing and help you reach your goals more quickly.”

In September, Hutchings signed up for information at the Women of Faith event in Spokane, Wash. She applied to Liberty Online and was accepted in early November and plans to begin classes this spring. As a wife and mother of two, Hutchings desires to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a cognate in Healthcare Management.

 “This is amazing,” Hutchings said. “Right now I am waitressing, so I could do something different and be able to be home.”

The beauty of earning a degree through Liberty Online is that it fits into where you are at in life. Liberty’s online format allows students to study when it fits into their schedule, whether that’s during the day, at night, or on the weekends.

Those who inquired to Liberty Online during Women of Faith can still register for Spring 2012 classes and receive the 15 percent discount. To receive the discount, registration must be completed by Dec. 31. To enroll today, apply online or contact an Admissions Consultant at or by calling (866) 783-0173.
