First $5,000 Scholarship Awarded to Kevin Collins

Congratulations to Kevin Collins of West Hartford, CT. Kevin is the first winner of a $5,000 scholarship awarded by Hearts and Courage. Kevin is starting this fall at Uconn in the Masters of Public Administration program with a concentration in non-profit management. Kevin would like to pursue a career after graduation in the human services sector, specializing in helping out citizens of CT who have been affected by budget cuts from state programs, specifically those programs that help residents who have developmental disabilities and behavioral health problems. Kevin has also worked for lobbying firms in the State of CT general assembly who have represented non-profit interests. Stay tuned for photos in the coming weeks of the Foundation awarding Kevin the scholarship.
Also stay tuned as we will soon help out two children, one from CT and one from NY in granting them a "Smile for the Heart"
