Kaukauna, WI – University of Wisconsin senior Ashlee Bork is the July recipient of a $500 scholarship from National Agents Alliance. Selected for her contribution to her community and GPA, Bork is attending the University of Wisconsin this fall where she plans to major in psychology. She specializes in child psychology and language acquisition.
Ashlee learned about the scholarship program through the website of NAA national managers Craig and Leslie Thompson.
When asked what the scholarship meant to her, Bork said, “Everything. In order for me to volunteer for my professors and attend psychology labs, I’ve had to turn down regularly paying job. Groceries, paying rent, those are just a few things that won’t be a burden on my mind after winning this award. This scholarship will allow me to justify all the time I’ve taken to focus on my education.”
Ashlee Bork was an active volunteer at the Appleton Wisconsin homeless shelter during high school. She currently teaches Spanish children to read English and hopes to go to graduate school and practice child psychology.
According to Andy Albright, National Agents Alliance president and CEO, “Ashlee’s academic path will lead her to helping many children who are at a disadvantage. We know she will make a positive impact in her community through the children she works with.”
Each month National Agents Alliance selects deserving high school seniors across the US who are college bound or currently enrolled in an institution of higher learning. The scholarship fund may be applied toward books or tuition. The scholarships are awarded on a twice-monthly basis. Kristen Thacker of Loganville, GA and Jermonica Johnson of Cedar Hill, TX were the June recipients. The other July recipient was Valerie Pesonen of South Lyon, Michigan.
