I really wanted to make a video about this but the videos from the scholarship winners haven’t got to us yet.
So I will announce this less in a magical manner through pictures and text haha the winners of the first scholarships!!
Battle Bear Scholarship- Malaun Rashaud Steele
Master Commander Scholarship- Brittany Ann Diggs
I’m not sure if I should be the one to tell their stories because I felt like they were very pretty personal. However I can say the reason why we picked them. The hand they were dealt wasn’t the best and they had every reason to be angry with the world yet they choose to stay positive. It’s one of the most difficult things to look face a completely hopeless situation and not let it destroy you. And there were a lot of stories like this which is why were going to be making this a semester by semester scholarship. Anyone who has already submitted is automatically applied to the next and the next. The scholarship page is back up on the site for applying:
The winners each received.
1.) 1,000 dollars
And a special gift of…
2.) HP Chromebook Laptop (Because I never had one in college and I always wish I did)
3.) A custom designed t-shirt from their personal stories.
4.) Custom Messager Bag
5.) Personal Letter and Certificate
Thank so much for everyone who had applied for this and I look forward to picking two more of you in a few months :)
