Lilly Endowment Changing Lives

“College was always talked about within my family, but no one has gone before me so I am a first generation student,” said Rodrigo Serrano, 19, who is attending Valparaiso University and studying nursing thanks to the Lilly scholarship. Without a Lilly Foundation scholarship, Sandra Wood would not be principal at South Central High School. Without it, Jada Bush would not be Regional Healthcare Director Chicago for Walgreens. Without it, Rebecca Yaw wouldn’t be on her way to DePauw University en route to becoming a veterinarian. Without it, Rodrigo Serrano wouldn’t be the first person in his family to attend college. [More on the impact of the Lilly Endowment].
