“When people who believe that a better world is possible collaborate and work together to bring about their shared vision of world bent toward humanity, compassion, and justice, mountains can move. With my academic credentials and professional work, I will humbly add my voice to the growing clamor of those who went unheard for far too long.”
Spring 2021 Scholarship Winner: Noah Bongiovanni
“My name is Noah Bongiovanni, I’m a 21-year old from Erie, Pennsylvania, and this year, I had my life turned upside down. When the pandemic hit, faced with no income due to the loss of both my jobs, I was forced to start working as a driver for a food delivery service.”
Fall 2020 Scholarship Winner: Alianna LeClair
“Where I’m from, not many people can say they’ve “made it”. I’m surrounded by people as young as me dying from bullets in their chests. I’m surrounded by blatant homophobia, even within my own family. I’m surrounded by my own loved ones struggling to rid themselves of past habits and battle addiction. Most importantly, I’m surrounded by those stuck in a cycle I refuse to be in.”
Spring 2020 Scholarship Winner: Kelly Nair Rojas
“Individuals who have gone through tough challenges in life can be those who thrive consistently. They build solid castles with obstacles found throughout their journeys and avoid blaming others. Nobody comes to this life with instructions on how to live to optimum capacity. We must figure it out ourselves, wherever we are.”
Fall 2019 Scholarship Winner: Timothy Sheehan
“I am writing this essay today to explain my college journey and how I turned my life around and became a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society while maintaining a 3.71 GPA at DCCC, and how obtaining a scholarship will help me continue my education and reach my academic goals. Education is the most important aspect to become successful and reach your career goals and obtaining a scholarship would help me tremendously in reaching those goals.”
