We are honored to award Black Hills State University Special Education major, Hartly Thorington the Kenadi Jean Weis Memorial Scholarship for the 2022-2023 school year.
Hartly is from Powell, Wyoming, a Dean’s List student at BHSU, Head Chair of the Future Teachers Association and dreams of being a Special Education teacher. Her younger brother, who has special needs, was the motivation behind this decision. She said that witnessing the positive influence he had on fellow students in school compelled her to want to help others like him.
Our recipient is excited to finish her college career at Black Hills State University with a Bachelor’s degree in K-12 Special Education. She and her fiancé Luke love spending time outdoors with their puppy Sadie, traveling together and relaxing for a good movie.
Please join us in congratulating Hartly Thorington!
