We recognize that it is often those who have faced adversity who develop the key leadership skills of perseverance, resiliency, and compassion. Too often these qualities are under-recognized for the role they play in leadership. Through this scholarship program, we strive to empower our youth by lifting up the diverse life experiences and challenges that build character, develop leadership skills, and inspire a more compassionate community.
