MONAT, through its philanthropic arm MONAT Gratitude, gave four seniors from the South Florida William H. Turner Technical Arts High School a four-year scholarship to fund their higher education goals. Each student will receive more than $25,000 to put toward tuition costs at universities across Florida.
The recipients include:
- Anaissa Pierre: Florida International University to study Psychology
- Nashley Campfort: Florida Atlantic University to pursue Pharmacy studies
- Gaetjensson Fancilien: Miami-Dade College to pursue a degree in Business
- Jimaya Wright: Florida State University to study Architecture
All four recipients participated in the School to Work mentoring program at MONAT Global in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami (BBBSM), which pairs at-risk youth with adult mentors at corporate partner sites.
“It has been such an amazing experience to serve as mentors for these students and watch them develop into amazing young adults who want to advance their education beyond high school,” said Lu Urdaneta, MONAT Gratitude CEO. “I’m honored that MONAT has been able to provide scholarships for these students to pursue their aspirations for higher education.”
MONAT’s partnership with BBBSM began in 2018 as part of MONAT Gratitude’s commitment to supporting children, education and families.
