Lakewood Student Receives National MS Society Scholarship
One of the 2012 National Multiple Society Scholarships for $1,000 was awarded to Emily Trautmann, of Lakewood, who graduated from Lakewood High School. Emily is the daughter of Bruce and Anna Trautmann (step mom) and Christine Robas (mom).
Emily is attending Kent State University with plans to major in art education since she wants to become a high school art teacher.
Emily’s mom has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis since 2000 so she fully understands the challenges of living with a chronic illness, including the financial burden the disease can have on the family.
“My mother showed me that determination and perseverance are the only things that get you far in life, “Emily said. “She has really served as an inspiration to me.”
The Society established the Scholarship Program in 2003 for people living with MS or their children who were pursuing a college or technical school education.
