JustJobs Announces 2017 Scholarship Award Winner

We are proud to announce that Lucy Rawson, who studies psychology at Wake Forest University, has won our 2017 JustJobs Scholarship award.

Lucy’s essay was inspirational and thoughtful. Lucy declared her major in psychology her sophomore year after observing the impact that mental illness has in the college-aged population. She has always been fascinated by the study of the mind, and from a young age, she fostered a strong inclination to help others work through their struggles. When she went to college, the need for mental health professionals became apparent to her. She has chosen her course of study because she believes that mental health is just as important, if not more important, than physical health.

Lucy’s openness, passion, and obvious drive will no doubt allow her success in her chosen career as a mental health counselor.

The six finalists – Lucy Rawson, Andrew Goldstein, Tracy Egbas, Lily Nelson, Hannah Dunaway and Nicholas Hallstedt– were selected from hundreds of other applicants for their dedication to learning, desire to make a positive impact on the world, and conviction to succeed as professionals. Choosing one winner was an incredibly difficult decision considering the exceptional student applicants and quality of their essays.

We want to thank our site visitors and all who voted to help us select a winner. The support shown through positive comments left for these students affirms both their career paths and the wonderful impact they already have on the lives of others.
