Healthy Communities Scholarship
Scholarship Sponsored by Patrick Woolley Attorney at Law
Patrick Woolley is passionate about the development of healthy communities. Through the use of sustainable resources and food-access programs, cities, and counties across the country are able to provide nutrition and activities to foster vibrant and growing communities. Uniquely motivated people are key to important local health initiatives like access to clean water or opportunities in community-level sports and outdoor events.
As a former collegiate baseball player who maintains an active passion for the game, he has personally devoted ample time and energy to these issues and constantly strives to create pathways for others to do the same. That is why Attorney Woolley has created the Healthy Communities Scholarship. Through this scholarship, he hopes to help students pursue their educational goals and lighten their financial burden.
