Morgan Smith from Azusa, California

When I was four my father was killed in a car accident by a man driving under the influence. I didn’t understand what had happened at the time, nor did I know how much it would affect my life later on. But as I grew older, I had learned that I had a passion for helping others and a love for life, just like my father.

I am extremely thankful and honored to be receiving the Pursue your Passion Scholarship by the Major Lucas Gruenther Legacy Foundation, as I begin my new journey as an undergraduate freshman studying biology at Azusa Pacific University with medical school following shortly after graduation in 2021. I hope to have an impact on the lives of others just like Luc did and still does today.
