Meet the four inspirational recipients of our 2018 Youth Activist Scholarship Awards! Paola Cervantes and Abena BakenRa (West High School, SLC), Fabiola Munoz Henriquez (East High School, SLC), and Isaac Reese (Brighton High School) were selected, from more than 20 outstanding applications submitted by graduating high school seniors across the state, by a committee of educators and community leaders.
They were chosen for their strong commitment to protecting and enhancing civil liberties in their schools and communities through their work for educational equity, comprehensive sexual heath curriculum, immigrant rights and social justice.
They were honored, along with other Utah civil liberties heroes, at the ACLU of Utah’s 60th Anniversary Celebration on May 10, 2018, and each will receive a scholarship to be used toward their first year of college. We wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
The ACLU of Utah is grateful for the support of the B. W. Bastian Foundation, the McCarthey Family Foundation, and other private donors for this year’s scholarship program.
