Scholarship Recipients

In 2016, Kids’ Chance was able to award scholarships to several talented young students affected by work-related accidents. Stories from our recipients below.

 

Trent

“The caring people who have donated this money to me have also invested in my dreams to become an agricultural engineer who will discover and improve the agricultural world.” – Trent

I am at heart a country born kid who has always held a special love for farmland communities.

I grew up in Enumclaw a town consisting of 12,000 people which includes many farmers, and back woods residents. Living in this community has driven my dream to choose a career that would involve me with farmers and country communities that have a certain distinct atmosphere of hard work like the great people that live in Enumclaw.

There are six children in my family and it would have been very difficult to pay for school without this scholarship.

Trent’s father has double amputations as the result of industrial injuries. Trent is starting his second year at the University of Idaho and is studying Agricultural Engineering.

 

 

 

Emily

“I am very appreciative of this scholarship award. Without it, it would be incredibly difficult to continue my education at such a wonderful school.” – Emily

I am very appreciative of this scholarship award. Without it, it would be incredibly difficult to continue my education at such a wonderful school. I attend Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

My father, a police officer, was killed in a car accident in 2009. Since then, my family has been struggling, not only emotionally but economically since my father was the breadwinner of our family.

I have attended Catholic school since kindergarten and wanted to continue that tradition in college. LMU has been perfect for me so far. I am currently undeclared and I am taking many different classes to discover my interests to eventually choose my major.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brianna

“Having this money to support me through my years of striving for my goal is definitely a blessing.” – Brianna

I became a foster kid at the age of 9 months and was adopted at the age of 2 1/2 years by David and Emma Powell.

My father was killed in the line of duty as a LA County Deputy Sheriff when I was 7 years old. Ever since then, it’s just been my mom and I.

I am a senior at Cal State Fullerton and my dream is to work with kids. In order to achieve this goal, I need to get into grad school. Having this money to support me through my years of striving for my goal is definitely a blessing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Harrison

“With the generosity of Kids’ Chance I was able to focus less on the financial aspect of planning for college and more on my workload as well as football.” – Harrison

Harrison’s father was a pilot who was killed in 2013 in a work-related crash. He and his father were working on his college admission process at the time of the accident.

In high school, Harrison was a scholar athlete, excelling in AP courses and earning varsity letters in football, wrestling and track. He volunteered extensively in his church, the community and with the Special Olympics.

Randolph’s father is a lineman who was involved in a serious work-related accident when a vault exploded in 2013.

In high school, he volunteered at Stepping Stones leadership program at Saint Bernadine’s Hospital. The first hand experience in the medical field solidified his goal to go into a health-related field.
