Mary Jo Liljedahl Scholarship

 

$1000

 

The Mary Jo Liljedahl Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a student who is enrolled in a public or private university within the state of Mississippi and who is majoring in psychology, counseling, or another related field. For those of you who may not know, my mom woke up everyday battling her mental health, which ultimately affected the entire family.

 

Making a difference is not about changing the entire world, it is about making an impact within your own community. We all have the ability to empower future generations of students who will be dedicating their lives to helping others who need it most. I wish my mom could have received the help that she needed and it is my goal that no other family has to share this thought.
