After deliberating over many deserving applicants, the Pay It Forward Scholarship Selection Committee selected four high seniors on April 24th: Angelique Schmidt of Ovey Comeaux High School, Chloe Deville of Northwest High School, Philong Phan of Cecilia High School and Major Willis, Jr. of Opelousas Senior High.
The press conference honoring this year’s recipients took place on Wednesday, June 12 at 10:00 AM, hosted at the historic Good Hope Hall, home of the Glenn Armentor Law Corporation.
Each student was honored with a scholarship certificate and a “Pay It Forward” Lifetime pin at the event. Community members of Acadiana were in attendance and spoke of their role in the Pay It Forward Scholarship and University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Previous Pay It Forward Scholarship recipients also spoke about Glenn Armentor and how the scholarship has changed their lives in the following years.
Congratulations to all of the recipients!
