2021 Volunteer for Vets Scholarship Winner: Kelsey Johnston

Bio: I am a hardworking student and I am always trying to help others through my volunteer work as a mask maker for Fort Lee. Due to my parent’s service both in and out of the military, I have lived in many different places and I’m not really from anywhere. I am a currently student at Richard Bland College and I hope to transfer to William and Mary College to pursue a degree in Psychology. I want to use my degree to become a school counselor so I can help the next generation of students.

Reaction Statement: I am very thankful for receiving this scholarship as it will help me in obtaining a higher education. The assistance that this scholarship gives me allows me the potential to assist others once I reach my goal of becoming a school counselor.
