2018 Scholarship Finalists
1st Place Winner
I lost my father when I was 17 from this disease. In a strange kind of way, entering this contest gave me a way to honor him, regardless of the outcome.
2nd Place Winner
Kelley Ann McGill
I am currently a Paramedic at a Children’s Hospital in Atlanta GA, and also working towards my nursing degree. I am a “furmom” of two loving dogs and one cat. I hope that by continuing my education and gaining my nursing degree that I am better able to give high-quality care to patients.
3rd Place Winner
I am 22 years old, studying to be a mechanical engineer. I hope to make a meaningful impact on how the world operates.
4th Place Winner
I was raised in Florida and currently live in Minnesota. I received my BA in Political Science and International Relations, but after my uncle’s death from mesothelioma, I made a full 180 in my career choices and am now pursuing additional education and a Masters in Physical Assistant with a focus on Oncology. I’m hoping to assist people like my uncle in mesothelioma cases.
