Milton Rose Fellowship scholar thrives on campus and in community
Senior exercise science major Rebecca Pigg is a Milton Rose Fellowship scholar will soon take the knowledge she gained at Pfeiffer into the real world.
Rebecca has participated in the Milton Rose program since her freshman year and has conducted extensive research throughout her college career that focuses on the benefits of running barefoot versus running in various types of running shoes.
In addition to Rebecca’s academic achievements on campus, she works as a personal trainer at Intrafit fitness center in her hometown, Midland, N.C. In her role as personal trainer, she is able to apply the concepts that she learns in the classroom to a professional environment.
After graduation, Rebecca plans to enroll in UNCC’s Clinical Exercise Physiology graduate program and go on to work in a hospital in a rehabilitation environment.
“My time at Pfeiffer University as a Milton Rose scholar has prepared me well for graduate school. It was a challenging yet worthwhile experience,” says Rebecca. “I also appreciate the helpfulness of my professors. They continually go above and beyond to lend a helping hand.”
