Meet the 2014 Jessica Beth Schwartz Scholarship Winners
About Jessie and the Scholarship:
In the past 11 years, the Jessica Beth Schwartz Scholarship Fund has given more than $90,000 in college scholarship money to 39 college-bound transplant recipients. This year's event will help even more students who have had organ transplants fulfill their dreams of attending college.
Jessica Beth Schwartz was a heart transplant recipient and Temple journalism student. Her dedication to earning her degree was cut short when at the age of 23, she passed away. In her memory, the Jessica Beth Schwartz Memorial Scholarship Fund was started to award young transplant recipients the opportunity to pursue their dreams of a higher education. All proceeds from Jessie's Day Dollars for Scholars Event support this scholarship.
