We’re So Proud of Our Bridge Kids!

September 7, 2011

Bridge Builders provided $4,500 in scholarships to five students of Bridge client families.  Congratulations to the 2011-2012 Bridge Builders scholarship recipients:

Joanna, a freshman at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Adelbert, a junior at Winona State University in Winona, MN

Adrian, a junior at the University of Illinois at Chicago

Roaa, a senior at Columbia College in Chicago

Steffi, a senior at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in Milwaukee, WI

Incoming freshman Joanna is excited to see her dreams becoming a reality.

“I have been accepted into the Air Force ROTC program and will be majoring in Aerospace Engineering,” Joanna shared enthusiastically.  “My goal is to join the Air Force and eventually to be a commercial pilot.  I am very excited for this wonderful opportunity to go away to school, especially a great engineering school!”

Any child of an active Bridge Communities client family is eligible to apply for a scholarship.  The applicant must be planning to attend either a two or four year college or trade school.

Scholarship funds are raised by Bridge Builders, a dedicated group of volunteers who increase awareness about Bridge Communities, as well as sponsor entertaining, fun and educational opportunities for client families – especially the children.
