Bethany Perales Memorial Scholarship
During her first dinner with members of the Leadership Living & Learning Center (LEAD-LLC), freshman Bethany Perales received a round of applause for her definition of servant leadership. Bethany not only understood what servant leadership is-she exemplified it.
Bethany demonstrated leadership every day of her short life. Even when her family's car lost control en route to Colorado, Bethany made sure her brother was buckled in, leaving no time for her to refasten her own seat belt. On Dec. 27, 2007, Bethany passed away from injuries sustained during the car accident. As an active member of the LEAD-LLC, an endowed scholarship has been established in her name.
The Bethany Perales Memorial Scholarship Fund will benefit students in the LEAD-LLC, who demonstrate exemplary leadership and service, in order to cover expenses such as housing.
