The Helpful Hands Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship award available to one student who gives back to their community. Describe a time you acted as a volunteer to better your community and the impact it had on the patrons, the organization, and you. Our hope is that this scholarship will encourage students to get involved in their communities in whatever capacity they can. No effort is too small when it comes to helping others.
My name is Lexi Lueger and I am currently a senior at Nemaha Central High School in Seneca, Kansas. At my school, I’m involved in several clubs. I’m the president of FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) and SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), and I am the Vice-President of NHS (National Honor Society). I also play several sports. In the fall I play volleyball for my school; in the winter I play club volleyball, and in the spring I play softball at my school. After high school, I will be playing volleyball at Johnson County Community College. I plan to major in biology and eventually become an ER physician.
In Her Own Words:
I was in complete denial when I first was told that I had won the scholarship. I really didn’t think I had a chance of winning it because there’s always someone out there with a better story to tell. Winning this has shown me that as long as it’s done with passion, there’s always a chance. This money will help me greatly in my academic journey.
