Manijeh Rustomji, 2015 graduate of Lewisville ISD’s Lewisville High School, was awarded the Lewisville Noon Rotary and Rick Neill Memorial Scholarships through LEF’s scholarship program last spring.
“Whenever I look back and remember the time I was awarded two great scholarships from LEF, I feel overjoyed,” Rustomji said. “It was a great honor receiving these awards.”
Rustomji now attends North Central Texas College. “I plan on transferring to Texas Women’s University next fall,” she said. “I hope to obtain a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies so that I can become a grade school teacher.”
She’s appreciates the hand up for college. “The two scholarships I received from LEF helped me greatly financially. They helped me pay for my classes and made me very appreciative of the donors of the LEF scholarship fund.”
LEF works with local booster clubs and PTAs to administer scholarships, and is home to endowed scholarships designed to honor the memory or legacy of those who play a role in student success in LISD.
LEF is proud of Rustomji’s success thus far and is honored to be a small part of it! LEF will have a similar role in LISD’s 2016 graduates’ future. Scholarship applications are currently under review.
Applicants will be notified via email in April as to the status of their application. Those selected will be invited to participate in LEF’s annual Awards Night on May 9, at Lewisville High School’s Stuver Auditorium, where benefactors will be on hand to present awards.
