Meet LaShara

It was LaShara’s young daughter who encouraged her to pursue her education. “She in second grade, she loves school and she’s my backbone,” she said. Mother and daughter often do their homework together.

Currently enrolled at Cumberland County College and pursuing a degree in Social Work, LaShara also works full-time at the Woodbine Developmental Center.

“Receiving the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation Scholarship not only allows me to continue my education, it also allows me to show my child that education is fundamental,” she said. “Granting me this opportunity allows me three things: to be able to give back to society what I have learned, portray to my daughter that education is vital and also provides me with the opportunity to enhance my standard of living.

“The LRAF scholarship puts me on the path to becoming a productive member of society.”
