2013 Impact a Life College Scholarship Winner
And the Winner is . . .
Hats off and congratulations to the 2013 “Impact a Life” scholarship winner – Heather Hagopian.
Not only did Heather write an informative and insightful essay; https://www.raffleticket.com/blog/raffle-fundraising-tips-from-a-holiday-hero/ it’s also noteworthy that Heather and her sister Haley are founders of a really awesome charitable children’s foundation called “The Holiday Heroes Foundation.”
Heather and her sister formed the foundation to provide children suffering from all types of serious illnesses with an opportunity to have an “everyday life experience that many of us take for granted”, such as a birthday party or holiday gathering. The hospital floor transforms from a gloomy, sickly place into a lively holiday party.
You can have a look at Chicago station WGN’s report on the awe-inspiring work these two sisters have started.
Heather is a student at University of Nevada Las Vegas and we wish her the best of luck in her studies!
Many thanks to the multitude of students who also contributed outstanding essays for the 2013 “Impact a Life” college scholarship.
