I am so grateful to the Morelli family and the Park City Community Foundation for selecting me as a Joseph James Morelli Scholarship recipient. I am deeply honored to have been selected as I strongly relate to Joseph’s learning difficulties. Much like Joseph, I love and excel in math and science. Even though I have struggled with writing, it never affected how I did in math and science. It is one of the few times at school where I feel validated. I felt like my grades in math and science truly matched my intelligence, unlike other subjects. I too, have always loved nature and the environment including hiking with my dogs and skiing. I also love music and have played the bass since 4th grade. Joseph’s science teacher described him as passionate and compassionate. I raise puppies for Canine Companions for Independence and after 18 months am able to give them back to CCI because of selfless compassion and a commitment to making a difference. Joseph sounds like the kind of person who wanted to do his part to make the world a better place. I plan to use the scholarship to purchase assistive technology to facilitate my success at State University of New York for Environmental Science and Forestry as a Paper Engineering major.

We Need Your Support on November 3, 2023

To date we have awarded over 330 scholarships, totaling more than $550,000. Your gift is helping these young adults receive much needed tutoring, testing, accommodations, resources and tuition support, which can make the difference between success and failure. But more than the financial support, your generous support builds students’ self-esteem and confidence, as well as restores the dream of being worthy and deserving of an education.

We would like to thank Promontory Foundation for their generous matching grant donation!  Please help us reach our goal of $40,000 so that we may continue to change lives!
