Adrian L. Maxson Scholarship for Social Justice Endowment tops $30,000!

"The Adrian Maxson scholarship is a truly inspired initiative that was founded to support social engagement in the Ogden community and beyond. I was the first ever recipient of this nascent, but important, award two years ago. My organizing and activism, especially in regards to founding and running Weber State STAND, made me an ideal candidate for the scholarship at that time. Without this award I would have been forced to work a full-time job instead of focusing on activism and graduation. Receiving the Adrian Maxson scholarship reminded me that the outside world noticed the work I was doing and were positively impacted by my actions. This realization furthered my resolve to live for service which has helped to enrich my life. By supporting this scholarship you are supporting the betterment of this state, one individual at a time."
