Spring 2017 Scholarship Recipient
The Loving Lily Forever Committee would like to announce our second Scholarship Recipient
Jeremy attends Governors State University and made the Dean's List 2016 with a GPA of 3.7. He also received an award from the honor society Tau Sigma on April 21, 2016 for outstanding achievement. His hobbies include working out and having fun with his family by spending time, going to dinner, and doing activities.
He belongs to Faith Movers church where he sings on the praise team, and works with the youth department. He teaches youth Bible class and does youth outreach and activities.
Jeremy displayed all the characteristics of a hard working, God loving, passionate, and giving person that this scholarship was modeled after in Maria L. Tejada. The Loving Lily Forever Committee is honored and humbled to once again be able to provide such a great opportunity to someone as deserving as Jeremy.
We wish him luck!
Loving Lily Forever
Thank You letter from Jeremy to The Loving Lily Forever Committee and Supporting Donators:
To The Loving Lily Forever Family,
I would like to first thank Melvin Tejada and every friend and family member who works diligently to keep Maria’s legacy alive and serve in her function in helping students follow their dreams to serve Chicago’s youth! I am honored and humbled to be chosen as the recipient of this scholarship. My experience as an intern at Cook County Juvenile Probation has been eye opening and life changing. I truly understand why Ms. Tejada was devoted to her career and the youth in Chicago. I will remain passionate and attempt to serve, like Maria has served, my community throughout my career. This scholarship couldn’t have come at a better time and is a blessing to myself and my family. I am so proud that in honoring your awesome loved one Ms. Tejada , you all chose to honor me.
