Future Lady Leader Scholarship

Future Lady Leaders Scholarship for Female Further Education

A scholarship to be awarded to a young lady (or ladies) in the community who exemplify the three C’s our organization stands for in their daily life: Confidence, Compassion and Creativity.

We are thrilled to announce our 2019 Future Lady Leader Scholarship winners:

Alexa Grabelle, Eastern REgional High School

Future Lady Leaders is proud to announce the recipient of our 2019 Scholarship, Alexa Grabelle of Eastern Regional High School! Alexa is the President of Rho Kappa History Honor Society, captain of Eastern’s model UN team, in Eastern’s Spanish Honor Society, a member of Executive Student Council, Key Club President and non profit organization Peace First Fellow. With Alexa – that is just scratching the surface! Alexa founded Bags of Books when she was 10 years old, a non profit organization donating over 152,000 children’s books, enabling 30,000 students in underserved communities to read more, imagine more, learn more and dream more. She utilized all resources at hand to get in front of CFOs, local female leaders, Professors, college students and mentors to drive positive social change. She was named “One of the 20 Kids Changing the World Right Now” by MMN.com in 2017 for her passionate crusade to support child literacy.

Alexa is attending The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in the Fall where she aspires to study behavioral economics and become a social entrepreneur that will create a ground-breaking firm to address education, health, and finance problems plaguing the United States and third-world nations. She doesn’t aim to stop there – Alexa is already planning to achieve a Masters Degree to continue to develop her leadership skills to launch a social entrepreneurial venture. There is no doubt in our minds that Alexa will continue to thrive leading by example at the University of Pennsylvania and make a positive impact, lead by example and make the world a better place.

Congratulations Alexa and thank you for being such a wonderful example for all of all of our Future Lady Leaders, showing that that you are never too young to stand up for what you believe in, make a difference and achieve your dreams.
