Aamina Muhammad, the daughter of Heritage Landing caretaker Fatima Muhammad, was selected as this year’s Stuart H. Nolan Scholarship recipient from a field of five excellent applicants. This outstanding young woman has received a check for $2,000 to help offset her post-high school educational expenses, including tuition, books, meals, transportation and other fees.
Aamina has spent her high school years involved in a variety of extra-curricular and volunteer activities, including tutoring elementary students, leading youth rallies, and collecting donations for local food shelves. Through those activities and many others, Aamina has developed strong leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills. She is also an extraordinary dancer and choreographer who attends the Perpich Center for Arts along with completing other high school and PSEO coursework. This fall Aamina plans to attend Columbia College in Chicago enroll in the Fashion Studies program, and obtain a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Public Relations. Her ultimate goal is to own a fashion PR firm and to use it to start a mentorship program for inner city youth, as Aamina wishes to give back to her community and to lead by example, as others have done for her.
We congratulate Aamina and all who submitted an application; we wish you all success as you pursue your dreams!
