These are the candidates who were found worthy of the scholarships of Carolyn Kelly.
Letter from the Trustee
At the beginning of 2021, the Carolyn Kelly Memorial Education Fund determined that it wanted to finish what it started; to fully fund the balance of the current educational track of some of the existing award recipients. All prior recipients were invited to submit applications, and many did. The process of selecting the two candidates to receive the Finish Line Program© award, out of the pool of incredible and worthy applicants, was the hardest endeavor undertaken by the Fund to date. As much as we wished to endow all the candidates, we were able to only provide this prestigious award to two winners. Their inspirational stories are below.
