$10k Scholarship finalists
A message from Don
The standard thing to say when making this type of announcement is that “It was a tough decision.” As stale as that platitude is, it’s also true. Each of our Finalists’ essays demonstrate a true commitment to becoming change agents. Thankfully, we were aided by more than 6,000 voters and their insightful comments of support. Some of the most common words that voters used when describing our Finalists were: “inspiring,” “powerful,” and “dedicated.” We couldn’t agree more with those sentiments.
