“Where Are They Now” Wednesday: Jodi Seale

We recently caught up with Jodi Seale, one of our 2014 AMF Scholarship Fund winners, to see how her $20,000 college scholarship has affected her life nearly a year after receiving it.

About Jodi

Jodi Seale graduated from Felicity-Franklin in May 2014. She currently attends The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences where she is majoring in nursing holds a 3.65 GPA. When Jodi is not in school, every Wednesday she goes to Whiz Kids, a program she became involved with through the Foundation. Here, she mentors a little girl who holds a special place in her heart.


College Life

Even though Jodi is not a big fan of change and was nervous about beginning her college career, she has grown to absolutely love it. She was especially concerned about the financial burden. That is, until she received a $20,000 scholarship from the Foundation. After her first semester of college, Jodi realized the amount of time and effort that goes into earning good grades. Because of her scholarship, she was able to focus wholly on school and not have to worry about how she would be able to pay for it.

Why You Should Apply

In Jodi’s own words:

“Not only did I receive $20,000 dollars toward my education but I also gained a whole foundation that believes in my education, and me that is the rewarding part. Coming from a single parent household, going into my first year of college I had a huge weight on my shoulders. I kept asking myself, ‘How in the world am I going to be able to pay for college?’ My mother had just enough to make ends meet each month. With receiving this scholarship it has been a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. If I had the chance to tell any future recipients why they should apply for this scholarship, I would tell them that this scholarship is so much more than just the money. The Anthony Muñoz Foundation cares about you and your future. They want to be a part of it.”

You too, like Jodi, can experience all the the Scholarship Fund and the Foundation has to offer. We encourage you to apply for the scholarship, which can be found here, or to share the opportunity with someone you know.

Meet The Interns!

At the Anthony Muñoz Foundation getting the community involved is an essential part of what we do and internships are a great way to get college students involved! This year for the spring semester we have four interns from Miami University and Xavier University!

Shelbi Felblinger

I’m a freshman at Miami University studying strategic communications. Last year I was involved in the Youth Leadership Seminar with Talawanda High School, “Unplug Bullying and Plug into Kindness.” Talawanda’s FCCLA went to the middle school to promote anti-bullying and got involved with the students. Because of the Service Challenge I was able to connect with the community and I look forward to continuing this within the Foundation.

“I’m excited to be involved with the Foundation but this time working first hand with all the Service Challenge projects!”


Kaitlyn Fitzgerald

I am a junior at Xavier University studying management and Spanish. I’m from Phoenix, Arizona. The reason I wanted to take on an internship with the Anthony Muñoz Foundation is that I wanted to see the impact of the work I’m doing with the Foundation and I love working with the kids.

“I’m excited for the opportunities and experiences of the internship!”


Katelyn Buckman

I am currently a senior at Xavier University majoring in Marketing with a minor in Entrepreneurship from Indianapolis, Indiana. Previously I have worked for various kinds of companies, including concert marketing, retail and for an athletic department. I wanted to work for AMF because I have always loved sports and helping people, therefore it was a great way to combine the two things.

 “I hope to gain a job in sports marketing or event marketing/ planning and I thought this would be a great company to expand my knowledge.”


Libby Thornton

I am a senior at Xavier studying Public Relations.  I am originally from Minnesota. I wanted to work for AMF because I have worked for various non-profits in the Cincinnati area and I have enjoyed knowing that my work is making a difference.

” I hope to continue my non-profit work in Cincinnati after graduation so this internship is a great experience and is helping me get more knowledge about non-profits.”

The interns are a huge help in the foundation when it comes to planning, organizing and reaching out in the community. Some of the projects they’re currently working on are “Whiz Kids”, “Straight A Scholarship”, “Impact For Eternity”, “Youth Leadership Service Challenge Projects”, and the Auction. They’re all very excited to be a part of the Foundation!
