Our First Recipient!

Today is a bittersweet day. On what would have been her 41st birthday, we're so excited to share that the first of many Melissa Daniels Memorial Scholarship recipients has been selected. We are so thankful to the Community Foundation of the Greater Capital Region for helping to guide us through the process of getting this up and running. And, most of all, we're thankful to each and everyone one of our family members and friends that donated to help make this dream a reality.

We're so pleased that this accomplished, bright and kind young woman, Ralena, applied for Melissa's Scholarship. Ralena recently graduated from Schenectady High School and will be studying Psychology this fall at SUNY Potsdam. We are looking forward to keeping in touch with her and seeing where her education takes her!

And we're not done! We have approximately $9,000 more dollars to raise to ensure our scholarship is fully endowed and carries Melissa's name on it forever. Want to help? Click here  to make a tax deductible contribution in Melissa's memory.
