Melissa L. Berwick

Was awarded scholarships for four years beginning in 2007.

In 2011 she received a BS in psychology from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, and is starting to work for an MA in elementary education. She plans on teaching second grade until she can go back for a PhD to be an elementary school principal. She is the recipient of the Jennifer A. Sadow Hand of Friendship Award.

Her goal is to work in child development. She is particularly interested in the mental development of young children. She was eligible for the scholarship due to a work-related injury of her father in his job as a fire fighter.

"My dad is my definition of a hero. Every day he risked his life to help our community. I am so thankful to Friends of 440 for awarding me this scholarship because it has allowed me to move one step closer to achieving my goal to follow in my father's footsteps and serve my community!"

– Melissa L. Berwick
