INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- M.S. WOODS REAL ESTATE, LLC has announced the winner of its spring scholarship essay competition: Nice Loufoua of Boise, Idaho. Entrants were asked to write about the importance of home and community in their lives, particularly in preparing them for higher education and the world beyond. To read Loufoua's winning essay, visit the m.s.Woods blog. As the winner, Loufoua will receive $1500 toward her educational expenses.
Loufoua's experiences immigrating to the United States from the Congo in central North Africa inspired her to pursue a career in Social Work. She is currently working towards a bachelor's degree in that field at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho. With the knowledge gained from her education, she plans to work helping incoming immigrants and especially for agencies like World Relief that relocate refugees facing persecution in their home country.
This marks the second year of many to come for the M.S. WOODS' spring scholarship essay competition. "We started this program to encourage students to consider how the home or community they grew up in got them to where they are today," CEO Mike Woods said. "Education is important not only for the individual, but also for everyone around them. We decided to do our part by providing college financial assistance for one hardworking, well-spoken student, and will continue to do so each year."
"Nice's essay was beautifully written, but it also highlighted her determination and her commitment to creating a welcoming home environment for everyone including refugees," Woods added.
The M.S. WOODS' spring scholarship is available to any current or prospective college student who is or will be attending an accredited U.S. institution. To learn more about this scholarship opportunity and upcoming deadlines, visit the M.S. WOODS' scholarship page.
