Scholarship Recipient



MWC and the Scholarship Committee were pleased to award the 2018-19 scholarship to Carmen Nightfall at our March meeting.  Carmen is a Native American and spent her early years in Arizona before moving to Wisconsin.  Having lived in two cultures, she is able to easily connect with people from both communities.  She is a 1998 graduate of Madison Memorial High School.  Since High School, she has experienced financial and personal challenges as well as other barriers including health challenges while pursuing her advanced education. Carmen is determined to complete her education and is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Biology/Genetics at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, with a GPA of 3.9. Common themes from her references were her desire to learn, to help others and sense of wonder.  Carmen is half way to her goal of obtaining a Bachelor’s degree.  We wish her the very best as she continues to pursue her dream.
