We are excited to announce Brittany Henderson as the recipient of the 2015 Summit Disability Law Group Scholarship. She will be attending school at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah this fall.

Brittany shared with us that she is extremely excited for the opportunity to attend Brigham Young University’s Provo campus beginning fall semester. Brittany has worked untiringly to overcome the difficulties she has faced with severe pain, which makes writing and many other tasks difficult. Her efforts throughout her high school career have paid off. Her personal situation has inspired her to pursue the path of becoming a diagnostic geneticist so that she can “help others understand their predisposition to disease.” Serving people in that way could help them avoid some of the struggles that she has faced in her own life.

It is not the challenges the come to our lives that define us, but rather how we respond to them. This truth is reflected in the stories of people who overcome obstacles and continue to pursue their goals despite the challenges in their lives. Their efforts to persevere and overcome inspire everyone around them to give all they have to achieving their goals. We are excited for Provo to have one more outstanding college student on their hands.
