CSR Press Release

Walden University Awards $50,000 To Its 2012 Scholars Of Change

Submitted by: Walden University

Categories: Corporate Social Responsibility, Academia

Posted: Dec 04, 2012 – 02:00 PM EST

 

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 04 /CSRwire/ - Walden University has announced the winners of its 2012 Scholars of Change video contest, an initiative that demonstrates how members of the Walden community put their knowledge to use for the greater good and live the university’s mission of effecting positive social change. The five winners each received $7,500 plus a $2,500 donation to the charity of their choice.

The Scholars of Change program began in 2009 when Walden invited students and alumni to submit short videos showing how they were applying their Walden education and experiences to bring about positive social change in their communities and around the globe. This year the public was invited to vote for their favorite videos through Walden’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/WaldenU.

“These five Scholars of Change are representative of thousands of Walden students and graduates who lead and contribute to positive global social change every day,” said Dr. Cynthia G. Baum, president of Walden University. “We are tremendously proud of the impact our community is having and continue to be impressed by the inspirational videos created for the Scholars of Change initiative year after year.”   

The 2012 Scholars of Change and their designated charities are:

  • Nnenna Franciamore, a Ph.D. in Education student from Bronx, N.Y., founded Solid Foundations Preschool to offer licensed daycare services and Solid Foundations for Healthy Families to offer free workshops to help parents balance family and work commitments; her charity donation will go to BRITE Initiative.
  • Kimberly Portanova-Feibus ’12, an M.S. in Mental Health Counseling graduate from Clarks Summit, Pa., volunteers at Marley’s Mission, an equine-assisted therapy program for children to help them heal after being subjected to physical and sexual abuse. Her goal is to expand the outreach to children’s parents to create a holistic response; her charity donation will go to Marley’s Mission.
  • Linda Sheppard, a Ph.D. in Psychology student from Hillsboro, Ore., has led medical teams to Haiti to disperse hygiene packs in clinics, volunteered in Guatemala to make education accessible for local children and coordinated fishing trips for schoolchildren in Portland, Ore. Her charity donation will go to The Chance to Dream.
  • Ranin Soliman, an M.S. in Health Informatics student from Giza, Egypt, designed databases at the Egypt Cancer Network to enhance patient safety, reduce medical errors and help save children with cancer through research; her charity donation will go to the Egypt Cancer Network. 
  • Jodi Vermaas, an M.S. in Mental Health Counseling student from Clermont, Fla., established the nonprofit Priority One Worldwide to stabilize the day-to-day living conditions of orphans in India by providing safe living environments and free mental health services; her charity donation will go to her nonprofit.

The Scholars of Change videos and other honorable mentions are available for viewing online at www.WaldenU.edu/scholarsvideos.
