Broadview University Community Service Scholarship Winners
Published on May 23, 2014 by Staff Writer
Broadview University has a great view on service. Our “We Care” philosophy is exemplified time and again throughout our organization. One specific way is through the community service scholarship program that Broadview awards every term. Broadview University-Layton awards two community service scholarships, and the winners receive $2,000 towards tuition, spread over four terms. The summer term scholarships were awarded to Erin Beares and Amy Carter.
Erin Beares is a veterinary technology student that has been volunteering for Best Friends Animal Society since October. Erin was introduced to this organization when she first volunteered at their semi-annual Super Adoption event. “After that, I started volunteering at their Pet Adoption Center in Sugar House. I help with tasks such as walking dogs, socializing the cats, answering questions from the public, and cleaning and sanitizing the facilities,” said Erin.
Erin has also been volunteering at the Best Friends kitten nursery where she bottle feeds orphaned neonatal kittens from local shelters. “I wanted to volunteer with these organizations to gain experience working with animals and to meet people in the community. It has been a fun experience and also a learning experience because it is closely tied to my program. I intend to continue volunteering well after I finish my education,” said Erin.
Amy Carter is a massage therapy student who has been involved with community volunteering her whole life. “I have always been dedicated to giving to my community in any way I can and plan to continue to do so. Community service is such a wonderful way to improve one’s quality of life and for those around them,” said Amy.
Amy has been a volunteer music conductor for a choir in Clearfield, Utah. “I held week practices and lead the choir in three performances where many other residents of Clearfield were able to come and enjoy the performance,” said Amy. For the past three years, Amy has also volunteered as a dance instructor for elementary school-aged children. She choreographs a routine, teaches the children, and helped with props and costumes. “I enjoy sharing my knowledge of dance with kids that would not normally have the opportunity to learn or experience dance in this way,” said Amy.
Scholarship applications are accepted in weeks 1-8 of any term, for awarding in the following term. If you have any questions, please see our financial aid office.
Congratulations again to Amy Carter and Erin Beares. We appreciate all you do to help improve our community and to show that you care.
