The winner of the 2018 Christensen & Hymas General Scholarship is Cherise Brown! Growing up, Cherise witnessed firsthand the negative side effects of substance abuse in people’s lives, and recently had someone very close to her pass away as a result of drug addiction. Because of that, she decided to pursue a career as a counselor, hoping to be a positive influence in the lives of others who might be struggling. Cherise is pursuing her education at the University of Nevada where she has maintained perfect grades with a 4.0 GPA. She intends to work as a school counselor at the Washoe County School District in Nevada upon graduating.
We wish Cherise, as well as all the other scholarship applicants and recipients, success in their pursuit of education and professional success.
