Education is the Edge I Need to Reach my Goals

Selected Independent Funeral Homes Educational Trust selected Stacy Meeks of Aurora IL as a recipient of the Second-Career Scholarship in the amount of $1,500. Stacy attends Worsham College of Mortuary Sciences in Wheeling, Ill.

Meeks will graduate in September 2015. She has been a Customer Service Representative at AT&T for 17 years and is heavily involved with serving others through church organizations. She feels this life changing career adjustment will be one filled with great reward and many opportunities. Meeks looks forward to the continued experience of assisting families during times of bereavement.

“I aspire to be successful in funeral service while bringing new ideas to the profession. Since knowledge is power, I feel education is truly the edge I need to reach my goals. Beginning a new career has been challenging; however, I expect the rewards to be great. I am honored to be chosen for this scholarship and greatly appreciate the assistance from Selected Trust.”
