|Samantha P. - Livonia, Michigan - Scholarship Recipient
|We started the Love-Peel Scholarship Fund for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students to help deaf and hard of hearing students achieve their education goals and mitigate the special challenges they face, especially in the area of reading comprehension. Lion Deborah Love-Peel has been a Detroit Lions Clubs member for over 20 years, and she has worked with a number of organizations that support deaf and hard of hearing people. As the mother of a deaf daughter, Deborah is keenly aware of the needs of deaf and hard of hearing young people and the special educational challenges they encounter.
|The goal of this scholarship is not only to award students extra finances to attend college, but to assist and encourage them while in college to succeed in the goals they set for themselves.
|Lion Love-Peel creates partnerships with organizations to establish support processes for the students who receive these scholarships as they navigate the higher learning institutions of their choice.
