supporting their education.
Hard work and talent should be recognized and supported! For many students, college is an important period of continuing the academic exploration they started as kids. We’ve provided several $5,000 college scholarships to talented and dedicated high school seniors that have pursued their passions with commitment, and are now attending great schools doing amazing things. We’ve also sponsored two talented junior high school students as part of the Artist-Scholar Program at the Orange County School of the Arts.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW
As a college sophomore, I have joined many different groups at Johns Hopkins! I am currently still majoring in Public Health with a minor in Business, taking heavy interest in pursuing an MHA and going into hospital administration. As for student groups, I am part of the Pets Animal Welfare Society, a group dedicated to volunteering at Animal Shelters, and of Advocates for Baltimore Community Health, a volunteer group dedicated to community advocacy for living healthier lives. We often go to farmer’s markets and other public events and set up stations where people can learn how to take steps to be healthier. Finally, I am also volunteering at the Emergency Department at our local hospital, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital. I am still extremely interested in preventative medicine, but I also have taken great interest in the business side of health providers, hence my pursuit of a Master’s in Health Administration.
