Light Up The World Scholarship Fund
To better position our students in academia, Werthing has established the Light Up the World Scholarship which honors the mentoring legacy of Gabrielle Lamiah Reynolds who departed this earth on 02/12/2020. Gabrielle’s mentoring works demonstrated that when rising leaders are empowered, confident and self-sufficient; they become high achievers and positively impact the lives of everyone in their family and community.
