Journey Williams, a senior at South Lake High School, is one of 12 finalists for the prestigious Leaders for Life Fellowship.
The Leaders for Life (L4L) fellowship was created by the Asofsky Family Foundation in partnership with Take Stock in Children, a nonprofit organization that provides mentors and college scholarships to financially at-risk students in Florida to help students graduate and successfully enter a career.
Each year, Take Stock in Children’s top students from across Florida apply for the L4L fellowship program which involves a rigorous application process that requires essays on education and leadership, as well as letters of recommendation. The six students selected for the L4L Fellowship receive their tuition scholarship from Take Stock in Children, plus up to $10,000 per year for four years in additional scholarship funds, along with educational and networking opportunities.
The L4L Fellows will be announced in December 2021. Williams and the other L4L finalists each received a MacBook Pro.
Williams is an honor student and has been a leader on the Eagle Nation track and field team for the last three years. She has worked part-time while going to school.
