2020 Scholarship and Award Winners Share The Impact on Their Lives

Gina Lusvardi

University of Alabama

Donald McKelvie Memorial Chemistry Award

"At the University of Alabama, I have been excelling in all of my classes as a chemical engineering major and have had the opportunity to join some wonderful organizations. At the beginning of the semester, I was able to get a position in one of the research labs on campus studying nanofibers. Additionally, through the medical honors society, I am hoping to secure a volunteer position at a hospital for next semester. Also, for fun (and stress relief), I joined the triathlon club. Overall, receiving the scholarship from KEF has allowed me to worry less about how I am paying for college and focus more on my education and take advantage of some cool opportunities offered here. Thank you KEF!"
