2018 Scholarship Winners

We asked our scholarship winners a few questions about themselves and here's what they had to say:
 

Mackenzie Carman

College attending: Spokane Falls Community College

What does a college education mean to you?

A college education means I can get closer to my goal of becoming a teacher. College opens up doors to more opportunities and can get you further in life.

Upon hearing that you won the scholarship, who did you tell first?

My mom told me the good news and I immediately texted my good friend, Matt.

What is your favorite local charity?

I like the Children's Miracle Network because they help children with medical issues. At my work, there was a bio of one of the kids who had cancer and a lot of the donations were going directly to help her fight cancer. I even donated money to help her cause. 

What is your favorite movie?

I like Black Panther, mostly because there is a lot of women empowerment in it.

What is your favorite meal?

I love making and eating spaghetti

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

I am a mix of both. I usually get up first in the house, but love to read in bed at night.

What is your favorite place to visit?

I have been to plenty of cool places and have loved them all, but my dream place I hope to visit someday is New Zealand.
