We created a private Facebook group to connect Fierce Scholarship Winners with Fierce Mentors.
We currently have three mentors (plus myself)
and 13 young adults involved in the group. Two
of our mentors are touring Christian artists from Texas and Maine and a life coach/personal
trainer from upstate New York.
FIERCE NETWORK OF MENTORS
In 2015 I sat on a stage at Woonsocket High School waiting for our turn to recognize and present three Fierce scholarships.
As I'm waiting, a grey haired gentleman stood up and said "I've been here for the past 23 years presenting a scholarship..."
That statement rang out in my head.."Oh man, I could be here for the next 20+ years myself!!" It made me think about those
students and what impact it had in their lives, if any.. other than receiving a check. It challenged me to think what the foundation
as really offering students. I have never wanted to be just a check-writing source, that's really the easy part. The vision was
always about doing what Shannon did, build relationships that have the ability to have a lasting impact in someone's life.
