What is the greatest benefit to being a Mizzou Alumni Association member? For many of the volunteers in Mizzou's Chicago alumni chapter, it's the opportunity to invest in future Tigers. That's why we are so proud to see our 2015 Mizzou Chicago scholarship recipient, Ashley Yong, featured in a recent article by Erik Potter in MIZZOU Magazine.
I'm not sure if it's the honesty of her story or her willingness to share it with the entire Mizzou community, but we are inspired by how Ashley transformed a difficult personal situation into an opportunity to ensure more incoming students would feel a sense of belonging at Mizzou. These qualities are exactly why we recognized her just three years ago and why we are so proud to see her continue to impact the community around her wherever she goes.
Ashley, our hats are off to you once again! Good luck coming down the home stretch at Mizzou!
Each year, Mizzou Chicago awards one $1,000 renewable scholarship to deserving incoming students like Ashley. So far in 2018, more than 700 local students have applied for this single scholarship. Generous local alumni have stepped up to establish an endowment in order to support more students in the future. Would you consider joining our efforts this year?
