Recently I have partnered with Project Impact MS to sponsor an academic scholarship for the 2022 school year. Project Impact MS is non-profit organization working to combat education inequity in the state of Mississippi. One way that this is achieved through the help of our community is through sponsoring a scholarship.
The Mary Jo Liljedahl Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a student who is enrolled in a public or private university within the state of Mississippi and who is majoring in psychology, counseling, or another related field. For those of you who may not know, my mom woke up everyday battling her mental health, which ultimately affected the entire family.
Making a difference is not about changing the entire world, it is about making an impact within your own community. We all have the ability to empower future generations of students who will be dedicating their lives to helping others who need it most. I wish my mom could have received the help that she needed and it is my goal that no other family has to share this thought.
The current fundraising goal is $1,000 and it is open from now until January 28th! Please partner with me by donating and sharing!
