This prize honors Kellie van Meurs’s life, character, and beliefs. Before being diagnosed with a chronic illness and forced to postpone her education, Kellie was working toward a degree in the creative industries. Kellie died soon after that.
Kellie enjoyed writing because it allowed her to share her experiences, feelings, and frequently hilarious viewpoints with others. To honor Kellie’s life, her family and friends have kindly pledged to support this scholarship. This award is intended to help and support a student who, like Kellie, wants to pursue a degree in this field of creative endeavor. The Kellie’s family hopes that the scholarship recipients will be motivated by Kellie’s example and her boundless energy, kind heart, and perseverance.
