Bogue Chitto,


When I received the email that I was one of the Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation Scholarship awardees, tears of joy ran down my face. Being awarded this scholarship was the greatest accomplishment of my entire senior year. The Joseph James Morelli Foundation was my first opportunity to be on a fair playing field for a scholarship. I am genuinely grateful for this opportunity. The Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation is dedicated to people like ME, so I knew I was a worthy applicant as a person who has severe dyslexia. I am excited about the monetary support but even more excited about the mentorship program. At my high school, there are no other students like me, so to have a foundation and mentorship program that can relate to me is enormous. Thank you again for choosing me as one of the 2022 scholarship awardees.
