The summer of 2011 marks another great success for the Julie Foudy Leadership Foundation’s Military Daughter Scholarship Program. We are pleased to report that girls from all over the country had the opportunity to spend a week at the Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy (the "JFSLA").
Our goal for this summer was to share the JFSLA experience with even more US military daughters, in an effort to show our appreciation for those parents who serve our country. Due to your generous support, we had military daughters join us from Kentucky, Utah, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Colorado, California, New York and Alabama. This year’s outreach effort took us way beyond the level of success we have celebrated to date and we have YOU to thank for this accomplishment.
Sixteen military daughters have now had the opportunity to embrace their inner self, find their voice, and learn how they can return to their respective communities as strong, confident leaders. Below is just one example of how your support has made an impact. Alan, the father of one scholarship recipient had this to share:
"I'm writing to say thank-you ... it’s nice to know my 20 years of military service is still appreciated. Without your scholarship, my daughter's dream of attending the leadership Academy would have remained just that and I would have been denied her endless smile as she reminisces about all her Chicago experiences. Thank you, again, for being such a positive influence on my daughter."
We feel incredibly fortunate to have such a strong team of supporters who believe in our mission and we want to extend our sincerest gratitude. We hope that you will continue to support the Foundation’s Military Daughter Scholarship Program as we push forward to prepare for next summer.
