Thank you to all who applied to our 2021 Accountability & Morality Scholarship! We are thrilled to announce this year’s 5 winners, congratulations to Kassie Yeager, Natalia Capella, Elijah Hill, Olabisi Alake, and Olga Ivashyna! You can read more about the winners and their achievements below!
My name is Kassie Yeager and I am a senior in high school this year at Colorado Preparatory Academy. This year as a senior in high school, I was able to take all concurrent enrollment courses at Colorado Mesa University. Living in Montrose, Colorado made it convenient to take classes through the university and get a jump start on my continuing education.
Next fall, I will be enrolled as a full time student at the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho. Through this school, I plan to study Wildland Fire Ecology and Forestry. I am so excited to continue my education in the Wildland Fire world! With my knowledge and drive to help others, I can help save lives, homes, and communities from the devastating effects of wildland fires. Each year, the western United States, is plagued with wildfires. However, working with local, state and federal agencies, I will be able to have a positive effect on the health of the forests which will help mitigate fires, but also help control the spread of the destructive fires once they do start. I strive to make a difference for many people across the west. I am grateful to the O’Connor Acciani & Levy, 2021 Accountability and Morality Scholarship for assisting me in my pursuit of furthering my education at the University of Idaho.
Winning this year’s O’Connor Acciani & Levy, 2021 Accountability and Morality Scholarship is amazing! Knowing that I have financial support to assist me in pursuit of furthering my education is humbling. As a high school student, I have worked so hard to obtain as much knowledge as I can. I want to further my education in wildland fire so that I can help countless people across the United States by saving lives, homes, and communities from the devastating effects of wildfires. Thank you so much O’Connor Acciani & Levy for selecting me as your recipient of the scholarship. I look forward to the next steps in my education!
I am so incredibly thankful to be chosen as the recipient of this scholarship. Through this opportunity, O’Connor Acciani & Levy are not only funding my education but also bringing me one step closer to my dream of becoming an engineer! Thank you so much!
I am beyond grateful and excited to hear that I have been awarded this scholarship. I’ve worked very hard this past year to ensure that I could make my education as affordable as possible, and I am so blessed and fortunate to have been given this Scholarship. Thank you all so much.
I was honestly so surprised that I had won, I really wasn’t expecting it! It was such a great feeling to not only get financial aid for college but also receive recognition from a law firm for my research paper on a legal case. This gives me encouragement to further pursue my interest in law and this scholarship helps to relieve me of some of the expenses that come with attending college. Thank you!
I was caught completely off guard; I didn’t expect anything from this scholarship, especially since I applied for another scholarship and didn’t get it. So I was quite shocked when I got the phone call declaring I earned the scholarship. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
