UNF Sophomore First Student Published in National Literary Magazine

Alexandra Marshall, a sophomore in the School of Nursing at the University of North Florida, was recently published in The Collegiate Scholar, an online national publication produced by The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS). She is the first UNF student to be selected for publication in the national literary magazine.

Marshall, a Southside resident, had her piece, “Dyslexia,” appear in the fall 2010 issue of the online publication under the autobiography category. “Marshall’s ‘Dyslexia’ was chosen because the courage and determination it took to write an autobiographical story about a disease many are embarrassed to admit they have,” said Janine Deegan of NSCS. “It was inspirational to read about how she learned about her disease, overcame it and eventually became proud of how it set her apart.”

The Jacksonville native, a member of NSCS, is pursuing a degree in nursing at UNF and plans to attend graduate school to become a psychiatric advanced practice registered nurse. She is a recipient of the Florida Medallion Award and a scholarship from The Players Championship.

“NSCS is happy to provide members with an opportunity to be published. We hope that Marshall’s work will inspire other members to share their creativity with the NSCS community,” said Steve Loflin, CEO and founder of NSCS.

The Collegiate Scholar, produced three times a year, recognizes members who combine their creative and academic pursuits. Members can submit their work under five categories and are not limited to publication in one category.

Membership is by invitation only, based on grade point average and class standing. NSCS has more than 750,000 members and more than 270 chapters in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
