The Scout Fuller Fund for Social Justice
2011 Award Recipients


The 2011 Summer Service Award winner is Whitnee Hidalgo. Whitnee is a junior sociology major at  Manchester College.

Whitnee says:

The Hip Hop Caucus Education Fund was a life changing experience. The CEO and founder, Rev. Lenox Yearwood, Jr., was a supportive and innovative leader who helped mold me into the person I am now. Working for the Caucus gave me opportunities to meet Senator Jessie Jackson and Major Dave Bing, as well as hear former President Clinton speak. My placement at the HHC not only helped me grow professionally but also personally. Being in DC helped me grow and evolve as a person. The summer experience I had in DC working for an nonprofit changed my life forever.
