2020 Winner, Rica Blanks
My name is Rica Blanks, and I'm currently pursuing a Master's in Social Work in an Advanced Standing cohort. In my previous experience as a substance use Prevention Specialist, I learned first-hand the significance of prevention work in strengthening youth and helping build resilient communities. I am beyond grateful for the Drug-Rehabs.org scholarship for providing me with the financial relief I need-especially during a period in time where distress and trauma have heightened due to recent events surrounding the pandemic. With my MSW, I hope to invest my education, skills, and experiences in helping develop prevention programs that will promote positive youth development and overall strengthen communities.
2019 Winner, Melanie Ryerson
I am currently a middle school Special Education teacher planning to become a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. As someone who has experienced loss and trauma, I dream of establishing a Wellness/Mental Health Collective that addresses the holistic needs of youth and adults who have experienced trauma. The Drug-Rehabs.org Scholarship has provided me the financial relief I need to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning.
