We are very excited to announce the recipient of a new scholarship my family has created, Shannon Swan an Anthropology major at UC Berkeley. The Future Women Leaders scholarship was created out of a need to help support future women leaders that are dedicated to empowering and/or giving back to women in their community or around the world.
Shannon Swan inspired us 2 years ago when she applied for the Beverly Mullins Memorial Scholarship (BMMS) for single re-entry parents working on their undergraduate degree. At the time we had been considering a new scholarship, but hadn’t fulling lay the ground work for it. Once Shannon applied for the Beverly Mullins Memorial scholarship again, we knew it was time to officially announce the new scholarship and select her as our first recipient due to the work she is doing.
I don’t yet have a bio on Shannon, but hope to soon! Follow her on twitter at @hominidsrus.
