Not all higher education journeys begin the same—with the excitement and anticipation of the path ahead. In fact, some paths start at the end of a rocky and bumpy road. Elizabeth Carroll’s journey is an example of the latter. 

June Bright Future Scholarship Winner: John Lohrfink

Advancing His Journey of Public Service

John Lohrfink’s history of public service began when he was a teen. The NCU School of Business and Technology Management student served hundreds of hours as a volunteer Firefighter and reveled in helping his community.

Wanda Malave has a peaceful vision. For the past 27 years, she’s dreamed of facilitating positive change between local law enforcement and the communities they serve—and, the full tuition NCU Bright Future Scholarship will support her journey to achieve it.

“It feels as if I’ve received a dose of strength and vigor to keep moving forward,” she says of being one of the recipients of the June scholarship.
