Kamille is from Detroit, MI and is graduating with her degree in Sociology and a Minor in Law, Social Justice and Change. During her time at Michigan she helped to found the Christian Collegiate Fellowship organization which assisted students with pursuing a healthy balance between academic, spiritual and social life. Kamille was also selected as a Fulbright International Summer Institute Fellow and studied the impact of international investing and negotiation practices. As she finishes her studies here at Michigan she would like to pursue a Law Degree so that she can advocate for youth in foster care along with other human rights issues. Congratulations, Kamille!
We just celebrated our 20th graduate — Regina Austin from NAU — last week! Regina earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Women and Gender Studies. She came to NAU from Tucson as one of our first Blavin Scholars at NAU. She is getting married next month and is then off to pursue her Master’s Degree in Social Work at the University of Washington. Regina’s passion is to help current foster youth who are in the same position she was in. Congratulations, Regina! You’re an inspiration and we couldn’t be more proud of you!
The Blavin Scholars Fund was established in 2010 by Paul and Amy Blavin to provide assistance to Northern Arizona University undergraduate students who have been a part of the foster care system. This video explains the need for and importance of Blavin Scholars through the stories of some of our scholarship recipients.
Contact NAU for more specific information on supporting the program and about the program itself.
