Meet Grace, this year’s recipient of the Brett Lerner Memorial Scholarship. Grace is a senior in the Department of Journalism. Like Brett, she has a passion to make a difference on topics that matter most to her.
“Heading into my senior year here at the University of Illinois, I often sit back and reflect on all that I have done thus far, how many people I have impacted, or what kind of legacy I will leave behind once my days here come to an end in May,” Grace said. “Brett’s time with us was tragically cut short, but the mark he left was indelible.”
