I was notified today that I was the recipient of the Lane Smith Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship had very demanding qualifications and carries a monetary award of $1,000.00.
I am very grateful for the award, but more so for the selection. This scholarship was personally important to me because of the story behind it. In a nutshell, unfortunate things can happen to anyone – at any time.
The importance of life – no matter what it may bring – is something many take for granted. It is easy to do. In hearing about this scholarship, I was reminded not to.
