Junior League of Racine 2010 “Volunteerism in the Racine Community” $2,000 ScholarsMay 25, 2010
With nearly 3,000 services hours performed during High School and earning the highest GPA in her class, Yijing “Jean” Xin from The Prairie School was chosen to receive the Junior League of Racine 2010 “Volunteerism in the Racine Community” $2,000 Scholars
JLR is proud to award the 2010 Volunteerism in the Racine Community $2,000 Scholarship to Yijing “Jean” Xin, a talented graduating senior from The Prairie School who embodies the spirit of every Junior League member around the world. Two excerpts from Jean’s essay reveal the depth of Jean’s compassion for others. First, “Volunteerism is both a cause and effect of a flourishing community. A community is more than just a group of people living in the same geographical location –it is a group of people who care about each other.” Second, “Volunteerism, overall, is humanity. It means that we have the capacity to care and to give back. It means we are not content to rest on the laurels of our blessings, but would rather see others offered the same opportunities we were. Volunteerism means that we want life, not just a living.” Jean will attend Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts to pursue a degree in Biological Engineering with a minor in Economics and/or Management. The JLR and entire community wish you great success!This entry was posted in Uncategorized. Bookmark the permalink.
