2016-2017 Scholarship Winner
On September 15, 2016 we announced our first winner, Kankan Ndoye of Bay Path University.
Kankan has been working with underprivileged kids to get them excited about math and science, and received funding from the Otto H York Foundation to create courses to teach children about the world around them. She says, “The most valuable asset that I have and will continue to have in my lifetime is my knowledge and education, but it is useless unless I share it with others.”
What we loved most about Kankan’s application was that she exemplified what many of the applicants mentioned – “think globally, act locally” – by ensuring that kids learn about different cultures that they may not normally be exposed to over her three years volunteering at the Wanskuck library. She’s a first year pre-med/medical sciences student at Bay Path.
We’re looking forward to following Kankan’s progress through the years!
