2020 Winner Rick Merrill Attorney Dream Scholarship

The Attorney Rick Merrill Dream Scholarship

The Dream Scholarship was started in 2016 to help support the dreams of a current high school or college student looking to make a difference through the pursuit of their passion.

Applicants were asked to submit a picture with a caption that in combination shares their dream and shows how it makes a difference.

Each year we present a $1500 scholarship to applicant who provides the most creative photo or image with a caption to  explain their dream.

2020 Winner Shelvina Singh

This is a picture of my Papa’s last day on earth. His hand is on the bottom (past), mine is the middle hand (present) and my son on top (future). This picture represents 3 generations. 

Growing up I always wanted to be able to help everyone and if I saw someone sad it would make me sad. My dad always wanted me to do something that would benefit others but life had other plans for me. Now I am 31 years old and back in college to pursue my dream to be a nurse. I know how much it would make my dad proud.  I got my high school diploma at 30 years old and now on my way to a nursing degree. 

The reason I chose this picture is because my dad holds my past, I am my present and my son is our future. My son is the reason I got it together and went back to college to get my degree. This hasn’t been an easy journey with everything that is going on at the moment but I know the day I get my degree my Papa will be so very proud of me. 

Congratulations to our Winner.

We wish you well in your efforts to become a Registered Nurse.

Special Thank you.

This year we would like to thank Mary and Bruce Nemeth and Mr. Hur for partnering with Rick Merrill to provide this scholarship.
