The Corinne Licostie Family Foundation is proud to announce two recipients of the annual higher education scholarship.
"Raised by a single mother, I seek to contribute to society by becoming a foundation for others to seek their ambitions, like my mother has for me. Given the opportunity to learn more about psychiatry and psychology, I will be given more tools and ways to reach out, from spreading awareness of common mental illnesses to aiding struggling populations around the world in coping with recent tragedies.

"From as early as I can remember I gravitated towards writing and literature, always looking towards books as my life coach throughout my adolescence. My love for knowledge was always charged by the books I read; making me feel as though I had all of what the world had to teach me at the flip of a page. As Rosa Parks once said, “One person can change the world”, and I believe that with knowledge we all can."

Corinne believed in the ability of all people to rise above their circumstance and make a difference in the lives of others by following their dreams and holding open the door for those following behind. Congratulations!
