This year we sponsored a $2,500 scholarship for college students who have been impacted by a personal injury at some point in their life. As advocates for burn victims, we understand the financial pressure a severe injury can put on a family.
The scholarship seemed to resonate with many students, as we received nearly 400 applications. After reviewing the applications, we are very pleased to announce the winner of the 2018 Walker Morgan Scholarship as Ms. Stacey Ketchie.
Ms. Ketchie was able to maintain a 5.0 GPA student during her High School Career. She plans on majoring in Statistics at North Carolina State University. We are pleased to offer this scholarship and hope it assists Ms. Ketchie achieve her goals in the future.
Upon receiving and accepting the scholarship, Ms. Ketchie said, “I am honored to be the recipient of the 2018 Walker Morgan Scholarship. Thanks to your generous support, I will be able to pay for my tuition and the extra costs for books. Without the help of donors like you, I wouldn’t be able to attend college as a first-generation student. Thank you so much for this opportunity!“
We would like to thank everyone who applied for their submissions and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
