Reasons for Applying for the CDA Scholarship
Supplement to Scholarship Application for Catherine Wilkins
1. The illness of a loved one has depleted my savings and caused a great deal of medical debt which I help pay, while at the same time impeding my graduate education and making my progress as a student somewhat difficult.
2. My position as a graduate teacher is very rewarding in that it enables me to share my love of learning with fellow young people; however, it does not cover the full cost of my school fees and living expenses.
3. I fear that my dream of earning a graduate degree and becoming a college professor might not be realized without further financial aid.
Supplement to Scholarship Application for Catherine Wilkins
My name is Catherine Wilkins. I enrolled as a graduate student at Tulane University in New Orleans, pursuing a Master of the Arts degree in Art History.
I lived in the Tampa Bay area my entire life before moving away for graduate school, born into a wonderfully large and caring extended family. My family raised me very well, and taught me principles of love, wisdom, and faith from a very early age. In part due to their dedication( to my upbringing, I was able to skip first grade, going directly to second grade from Kindergarten. From grade school onward, I attended Catholic schools, where I was educated both intellectually and spiritually. During my time at St. Petersburg Catholic High School, I began assisting as a volunteer at a local soup kitchen, as well as at a tennis camp for young children. Additional extracurricular activities during that time period included employment of thirty five hours per week at Publix Supermarkets, membership on the high school tennis team, enrollment in the National Honor Society and Mu Alpha Theta (math honor society), and volunteer work for several environmental agencies.
I graduated high school third in my class, with highest honors and a special departmental award in English, just after my seventeenth birthday. In the fall, I dual-enrolled at the University of South Florida (U.S.F.) and St. Petersburg Junior College in order to take more courses at once. I took specialized courses at the University and more broad, required classes at the Junior College, all completely funded by merit-based scholarships. While at school, I received the Florida Bright Futures full scholarship, as well as an additional Legacy Scholarship from the Humanities department, a trustee scholarship from the Junior College, and both Presidential and Honors scholarships from the University of South Florida. I received my Associates’ degree in just over a year, in December, graduating on the Dean’s List with High Honors. After that point, I attended courses solely at U.S.F. while still working at the supermarket. At the University, I specialized in the Humanities, and had a ravenous appetite for all knowledge concerned with history, art, literature, music and theatre. My scholarships allowed me to take a great number of classes at once, sometimes as many as twenty-two credit hours per semester, prompting me to finish my Bachelor’s degree three years after I received my high school diploma. I graduated magna cum laude, with an overall Grade Point Average of 3.757.
Upon my graduation, I received an offer of a full scholarship for graduate school, plus a paid position as a graduate assistant at Tulane University, a well-accredited school in New Orleans. Unfortunately, over the summer between my graduation and my planned matriculation at Tulane, my boyfriend of four years developed a cough which prompted a visit to the doctor’s office. After several tests and minor surgeries, the doctors discovered that my boyfriend was suffering from Hodgkin’s Disease, a type of cancer (*TRUE* Patient suffers from cancer.). As an orphan, my boyfriend had no one else to care for him (*TRUE* But it is a lie that Dr. Wilkins cared for the cancer patient. She appropriates this for her own advancement.), (*LIES*) and I was reluctant to abandon him in such a state.
(*LIES* Dr. Wilkins appropriates this fact to gain sympathy and respect for herself. Dr. Wilkins did abandon the cancer patient. Dr. Wilkins was committing adultery with David Brodosi [Associate Director, Online Learning & Instructional Technology Services] and others. Dr. Wilkins was gaslighting and mentally abusing the cancer patient to the point it seriously interfered with patient’s treatment and nearly caused death of the cancer patient. Dr. Wilkins did not have time for college, teaching, adultery, fidelity, integrity, ethics, and caring for a cancer patient, but she could lie about all.)
(*LIES*) Since he was unable to maintain treatment in New Orleans, it was necessary for me to remain in the Tampa area.
(*LIES* Dr. Wilkins lies about location for her own benefit. The cancer patient received all their treatment in New Orleans at Charity Hospital. Cancer patient found their own treatment and was completely on their own. Dr. Wilkins was not present for any treatment nor did Dr. Wilkins provide care or pay any expenses. Dr. Wilkins did not even ask the names of the patient’s doctors and nurses, the real people who cared for and saved the life of her “loved one.” The “loved one” Dr. Wilkins is now trying to use without their knowledge in Dr. Wilkins’ scholarship scam for money and advancement.)
Unfortunately, I had not planned on attending U.S.F. for graduate school, and consequently had not applied for any scholarships. At such short notice, there was no financial aid available for me for my first semester of graduate school, and I was able to pay for only one course with the money I earned working as a library assistant at the University.
(* This is where Dr. Wilkins met David Brodosi, where David Brodosi proceeded to flirt with Dr. Wilkins, send her sexual messages and images, including nudes and sex positions, request “booty calls” from Dr. Wilkins, and then in real-life receive oral sex from Dr. Wilkins. David Brodosi knew Dr. Wilkins had a significant other, however Dr. Wilkins never discouraged the sex messages, images, and illicit exchange, as Dr. Wilkins enjoyed the attention and secret relationship. Dr. Wilkins says David Brodosi took her to a hidden area of the school library facilities, exposed his penis, and then grabbed Dr. Wilkins’ head and forced Dr. Wilkins to perform oral sex on David Brodosi. When revealed through David Brodosi’s and Dr. Wilkins’ exchanged sex messages, Dr. Wilkins at first said it was an act of rape by David Brodosi. Dr. Wilkins then admitted it was a consensual secret sex affair, and she was trying to hide adultery and other lies. Dr. Wilkins confessed she felt a “thrill and excitement” from cheating, having illicit affairs, hiding, and getting away with so many lies and taboo behaviors.)
(* After seeing and reading a large collection of months of sex messages and images on Dr. Wilkins’ home and USF work computers to and from David Brodosi [and other secret lovers], and after Dr. Wilkins told the patient that David Brodosi had raped her, the patient called David Brodosi on the phone at his USF office. David Brodosi obfuscated information, and denied any sexual relationship with or rape of Dr. Wilkins, despite the evidence of their exchanged sexual messages and images and Dr. Wilkins statements, accusations, and admission. Then behind the scenes, both Dr. Wilkins and David Brodosi conspired together to hide evidence, delete evidence, diminish and deny the facts, and attempt to keep a cohesive story between themselves, despite that months of sexual messages existed and were seen and read by the patient, and that Dr. Wilkins’ alibi stories and admission had already changed several times as more messages were found and revealed [from: “it was just flirting,” to “it was sexual harassment,” to “David Brodosi raped Dr. Wilkins,” back to “it was just flirting and talk”]. Dr. Wilkins and David Brodosi then tried to diminish their roles [Dr. Wilkins, among several stories she gave, said “it was just flirting and David Brodosi took it too far and raped her,” and thus she was the victim and not an adulterer. David Brodosi tried to deny all facts of the sex affair, and then later said between them they needed to keep to the false story that “it was just flirting and imagination, without sexual contact.”]. The patient then later saw Dr. Wilkins’ and David Brodosi’s messages to each other admitting to the secret affair, but trying to diminish it now that they were at least partially exposed. David Brodosi knew about the patients’ condition, as Dr. Wilkins told David Brodosi much about the life of the patient, as well as told many of her professors and USF faculty around her [she told others about the patient’s condition to gain sympathy and respect for herself, same as in this scholarship application]. David Brodosi callously did not care about the physical or mental health of the patient, or how his secret adulterous affair and the gaslighting and coverups with Dr. Wilkins would detrimentally affect the patient. Cancer patient begged and insisted Dr. Wilkins file a sexual harassment and sex offender report concerning David Brodosi to USF authorities and police, if Dr. Wilkins’ statements were true concerning rape, being a victim, and harassment. Dr. Wilkins told the patient she did file multiple times, but actually did not file any offense report. Dr. Wilkins and David Brodosi were only concerned that their secret affair needed to be covered-up, to avoid a sexual harassment case, to avoid public knowledge that Dr. Wilkins was conducting a secret affair, and to avoid an investigation that would reveal a much larger web of Dr. Wilkins’ lies, abuses both personal and academic, double-life, and sex affairs.)
(*LIES*) I was extremely troubled, not only due to the stress I experienced as a result of my boyfriend’s battle with cancer,
(*LIES* Dr. Wilkins was callously committing adultery and other deceits and abuses, and covering up her secret affairs with David Brodosi and others. When the cancer patient begged for the truth as the patient was fighting for their life, Dr. Wilkins continued lies and gaslighting, emotionally and mentally weakening the patient, and seriously distracting from the patient’s desperate search for cancer treatment, as their cancer was growing from Stage 1A to Stage 1B to Stage 2, and would eventually lead to death without proper care.)
but also because I felt as though I was falling behind in my course work and was forfeiting my dream of achieving a graduate degree in Art History and going on to work as a college professor. I was left with little but my family, friends, and faith to help me get through this difficult period in my life.
Fortunately, in spring, I was blessed with some opportunities which served to help me on my path to a productive and complete adulthood. I was offered a job as a graduate teacher at U.S.F., a position that provided a very modest salary, but which included a stipend for 75% of my tuition. This provided me a wonderful opportunity to share my love of learning with other young people while at the same time pursuing my own dream of receiving a graduate degree. I earned twelve credit hours toward my Master’s Degree in Art History at U.S.F. (*LIES*) before my boyfriend’s recovery allowed me to continue my education at Tulane University.
(*LIES* Dr. Wilkins did not care about the patient’s recovery. She was not even there for any treatments or the recovery process, or the ongoing checkups and tests. In fact, Dr. Wilkins hindered the entire process with lies, gaslighting, and distractions through dishonesty, cheating in college and academics, appropriation, and adultery. As previously stated, Dr. Wilkins did not even ask the names of the patient’s doctors and nurses, the real and selfless people who cared for and saved the life of her “loved one.” The “loved one” Dr. Wilkins is trying to use in her scholarship scam for money.)
While I still have a tuition scholarship and a job at the school, I have encountered a great deal of expenses, in terms of fees that run upwards of $1300 per year that I must pay myself, (*LIES*) along with aiding my boyfriend with his accumulated medical expenses (*LIES*), and, of course, my own living costs.
(*LIES* Dr. Wilkins paid nothing toward the cancer patient’s medical expenses. Not one dime. Dr. Wilkins did not care for the patient, or even purchase simple home care products a patient would need for health or comfort. Dr. Wilkins did practically nothing. Dr. Wilkins is creating a false story, timeline, and location in order that she can receive money for herself, in her own timeline and location [Florida vs. New Orleans].)
(*LIES*) Because I stayed in Florida with my boyfriend for the first year of my graduate experience and payed (sic) for much of my schooling on my own, my savings have been virtually depleted, and I often face a good deal of stress and pressure when attempting to pay my bills each month. In the meantime, though, I have remained active as a graduate student, maintaining a 4.0 unweighted grade point average while partaking in volunteer activities at the Newcomb Gallery and the New Orleans Museum of Art as well as serving as my department’s representative in multiple on-campus student organizations. This past year, I have taught two art-historical survey classes while I completed most of my graduate coursework, and I am now preparing to begin writing my thesis and applying to other schools where I would like to work toward my Doctoral degree.
Recently, my grandmother, a Catholic Daughter for over four decades, brought this scholarship to my notice. It seems like true help from God, and would allow me to take more courses at the University without worrying about my inability to pay the related fees. (*LIES*) In addition, I would be more able to dedicate some of my own earnings each month to help my boyfriend meet the cost of the medical expenses he has unfortunately accrued (*LIES*). (*LIES*) While his illness and the ensuing chaotic changes in my life have certainly been taxing – emotionally, physically, and spiritually – I am very grateful that I have had this opportunity to grow and learn, to help another, yet still persist in meeting my own goals (*LIES*). (*LIES*) The experience of the past year has taught me so much about life, love, and faith; important lessons which transcend those I learned in the classroom (*LIES*). I cannot wait to apply what I have learned about life to my educational studies, and this scholarship from the Catholic Daughters will provide me the means by which I can accomplish it.
