Hilbert business management student Lauren Carlin was presented was the $5,000 AAUW Jacquie Walker Scholarship. This is the ninth year the scholarship has been awarded to an area student who excels in academics and in community service.
Lauren says: “One of my favorite quotes is by St. Francis of Assisi: ‘It is in giving, that we receive.’ I really believe in that quote and how me giving my time, my energy can make a positive difference in people who need the help.”
The AAUW presents the scholarship in the name of News Four’s Jacquie Walker to honor her commitment to serving the WNY community. Applications, which include grade transcripts, essays, and recommendations, are judged by a panel of AAUW members.
