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.
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.
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.
