BECAUSE STUDENTS APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT!

Words cannot express how thankful I am to have been selected to receive this scholarship. There was a time in my life where I did not think I would amount to much. I was a senior in high school expecting a child and I was told by many that I would end up a high school drop out with no prospects of a college education. Because of these negative perceptions, I once thought an education from the University of Arizona was superior or above me. My life has been defined by constantly battling to overcome being viewed as just another statistic. I tried so hard to prove this to others, only to come to realization that the only person I needed to prove this to is myself. My education is allowing me to be a better role model not only to my own children but to the young girl or boy that feel hopeless and alone the way I once did. I can show them that if I achieved my educational goals with all the adversities I have been through, they can achieve anything their hearts desire. With hard work, perseverance, and a strong will I am on my way to achieving all my educational and career goals. To the University South Foundation and the community members that made this scholarship possible, I am beyond grateful for helping me in continuing my pursuit and allowing me to experience a sense of community support and motivation that I once found almost impossible to receive.

Judy A. Gignac
Memorial Scholarship

Dr. Judith A. Gignac-Leininger was an exceptional individual, businesswoman, and community leader. She was pivotal in the establishment of the University of Arizona in Sierra Vista, which brought first-of-its-kind access to university-level education to residents in rural Arizona. Her belief in public service, innovation, and the advancement of higher education left an indelible mark on the fabric of our community.

To follow her work and legacy, donations made to the Judy A. Gignac Memorial Fund are awarded to students in pursuit of business, economics, government & public policy, or related degrees.
