Jeffrey Lichtman Community Service Scholarship Winners
2019 Winner: Leah Richter
I grew up in a beautiful city called Oceanside, San Diego but now live in San Luis Obispo while attending Cal Poly SLO. In college, I have the opportunity to study Psychology with a minor in Child Development to deepen my understanding and equip me to work with a diverse population including children at risk. My heart for others continues to flourish the more I become involved in my community. I love seeing how doing little kind things can play a big part in others’ lives. It’s awesome to reach outside of my comfortable circle of people to talk and interact with people that are different from me through community service – I get to learn so much from them. I hope that my life shows one that is eager to serve others through giving my time and heart to others and organizations that strive to give people a hand up. I can’t wait to become a social worker to further help people professionally.
