This year, Louisiana was proud to offer 5 new scholarships to first-year college students, as well as 12 renewing scholarships to returning college scholars. Through the scholarship program, new and renewing scholars have the opportunity to connect with other students impacted by MS, and to get connected through Society programs and volunteer opportunities.
The renewing scholarship awarded to Kim McMillian from New Orleans, LA, has allowed her to continue her work toward a degree in the music industry at Loyola University. “I’ve always had an interest in music. As I learned more of the different facets of the music industry, I began to fall in love. I know this was where I was destined to be,” she said. The scholarship is helping her dreams come true, and she is getting involved to pay it forward. Her sorority sponsored a fundraiser for the Walk MS: New Orleans in honor of Kim’s mother. They had 25 people walk on their team this year.
Congratulations to all of our new scholarship recipients!
